AIR DATE: March 21, 2011

There are numerous stories from the US/Mexico Border.  Some are true and some are myth.  Border Agents in California along the San Diego/Tijuana border say border crossings are down.  In Arizona an undocumented immigrant is facing murder charges of a US border agent.  And, El Paso remains a relatively safe city despite being next to one of the world's deadliest cities, Juarez, just across the border.  We hear stories from all three regions to get a better idea of life along the border.
