Heightened security in California and Texas has pushed illegal border-crossers into the treacherous Arizona desert in unprecedented numbers - an estimated 4,500 a day. Most are Mexican men in search of work, but increasingly the border-crossers are women and children seeking to reunite with their husbands and fathers.

The thought of the crossing of Arizona is now crossing our minds.

This documentary is a harsh yet fair depiction of the thousands of migrants who attempt to enter the U.S. through Arizona each day and their struggles and the struggles the U.S. is having with boarder security. We learn that there has been a large influx of migrants who are crossing and a large conflict in what to do about it. This film proved to be quite intriguing, allowing a fair depiction through different views any where from those people against boarder crossing, farmers, "coyotes" or guides, and even those people part of the boarder community. The story is well comprised and explores many ideas on the issue. Overall very interesting, insightful and well presented.
