People attempting to enter the US illegally away from border crossings take major life risks ranging from death in the desert to abuse by either the coyotes bringing them in or xenophobic Americans hunting them. What we donít think of is whether itís at all safe for a Mexican to come across at a regular border crossing.

Theyíre not, and at least one video caught by chance by a US citizen on the spot has gone viral.

Eight people have been killed by US border agents after being taken into custody. If you can find a rebroadcast, check on your PBS station for:

A shovel ready project. We can dig under that fence. Never thought that fence did any real good.
