Life on the Line: High Stakes in a Texas Smuggling Corridor

July 6, 2016 | 4:23 PM GMT
In this high-traffic smuggling corridor, watch a "coyote" moving undocumented workers through the woods, listen to a Guatemalan teenager recount her long journey to South Texas, ride along with a busy team of U.S. Border Patrol agents, roll through a Mexican border town wracked by cartel violence and listen to a rancher explain the rules of border survival. This video is part of our Bordering on Insecurity project.
