Crossing Borders: From Mexico to U.S. -- It's a tale of two countries. In Sasabe, a Sonora, Mexico border town, Scott Carrier talks to immigrants on their hazardous, illegal desert crossing and to the border patrol waiting for them in Sasabe, Arizona. Luis Alberto Urrea reads form his books "Vatos" and "The Devil's Highway," about death in the desert. Guillermo Gomez-Pena imagines "Maquiladoras of the Future," fantasy border factories. And the show features a sound-portrait of Mexicans who risk their lives to find better-paying jobs in the United States.
