How Are U.S. Immigration Policies Contributing To Border Crosser Deaths?

Maureen Cavanaugh: The debate over the deaths of illegal border crossers landed on the doorstep of the San Diego County Water Authority offices yesterday. A band of protesters displayed 17 body bags, representing the 17 people who have drowned in recent months trying to cross the All-American Canal.

The issue of providing more safety to people using the canal as illegal access into the US, is part of a larger debate about U.S. immigration policy.

This morning we'll talk about how U.S. immigration policies are adding to the risks illegal border crossers face, and some of the proposed solutions.
