The Americans with Charlie LeDuff: Immigration across the Rio Grande

MCallen, Texas - An onslaught of immigrants are at the southern border. Washington's fighting over it and American taxpayers are paying for it. The families and tens of thousands of kids are left in limbo.

What do you do with them?

Charlie LeDuff is just back from the banks of the Rio Grande to show us the scope of a very serious situation. 

We're talking about 100,000 women and children coming up from central America and nobody knows what to do with them, so we're letting them go. Why? The answer's pretty simple: Washington, D.C.

We haven't seen a wave of women and children like this since 2001 when LeDuff crossed the border with the Mexican cartel. You've got it find it outrageous that 12 years after 9/11 and hundreds of billions of dollars later in homeland security spending, we're right back where we started.

    The streets in Ferguson are calming now. The Attorney General of the United States has arrived. The media will soon get distracted with the next catastrophe, and Ferguson will go on. There will be a trial probably. Will it be enough?

    NAFTA is 20 years old. Back then it promised us it would create jobs for all of us and stop the wave of illegal immigration from Mexico. So what happened to those jobs and why are the immigrants still coming?
