Every day, hundreds of undocumented immigrants from Central America attempt the arduous journey through Mexico and turn themselves over to U.S. border patrol -- with the hope that they will not be turned away. But the dangers they face along the way are many, and as Ramon Taylor reports from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, their fate rests on more than just the reception they get at the US border.

Why hasn't anyone done something about this!!!! This is total and utter BS! Our lawmakers are pathetic!!! I have repeatedly asked them to make this a fair trade immigration issue, whether illegal or not.

For every child that wants to come to our great nation, through the wonderful and glorious Mexico, then we will give an actual illegal criminal for each child! It's so simple to understand that it's borderline stupid!!!!

These children have no future without our help. Children are the only natural resource that ensures mankind's continued existence. We should be treating all children in the world better than gold!!! Criminals are on the opposite path!

So let the children in, and throw the criminals back! Not calling illegal immigrants 'criminals', I am calling the illegals that have come into our country, not for a better way of life, but for a better way of being a freaking criminal!!!!!
