During the past year, more than 250 bodies of people trying to cross the U.S./Mexico border have been discovered in the Arizona desert. That’s a record. Increased numbers of Border Patrol agents, a fence and better technology are forcing migrants to choose riskier routes when they cross the desert, according to a recent NPR story.

Check out the following video, which documents my travels with Humane Borders, a group that sends weekly volunteers to the Sonoran Desert to refill water jugs. Their mission is to prevent deaths in the desert. You can also see photos of the trip.

U.S. Immigration Laws–Native American Style

I came across this Current TV video clip that shows what would happen if the Native Americans had implemented United States-like immigration laws. The Native Americans’ worries about the newcomers from England are quite funny and reflect a lot of current attitudes in the United States. I enjoyed the talking buffalo character who is definitely anti-immigration.
