This is viewer supported news

Democracy Now! reports from the streets of a protest that went from the border towns of Nogales, Arizona to Nogales, Mexico in the state of Sonora. Over the last year at least 151 immigrants — some put the figure at over 200–have died crossing the Arizona border from Mexico into the United States.
