Episode Summary

The San Miguel Gate
(5/21/2013) Snapshots from the front lines of illegal immigration.

But because they are undocumented they eke out a living, knowing they could be deported at any moment – and many suffer very high rates of abuse while working without papers. Most immigrants enter the US from along the more than 1900 mile U.S./Mexico border, but many specifically come in at the San Miguel Gate in the Arizona desert, where border patrol agents say border security is a myth.moreless
