8/31/06: Border-Crossers and a New America

Salt Lake City, UT – Veteran journalist Charles Bowden drove 7,000 miles on the Mexican-US border - from crossings where masses spend their life savings on horrible journeys, to a dump-site of possessions that forms a tragic monument to illegal immigration, and to the lives of people who will never see their home again. Immigration is a reality, and Bowden says "We either find a way to make their world better or they will come to our better world." Charles Bowden joins Doug to talk about Exodus, his article in the most recent Mother Jones magazine.
