Stories from Beyond the Border by Claes AndreassonIn June of 1987, President Reagan stood in front of the Berlin Wall, saying: "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" Today, the United States continues to build its own walls along our southern border. The boundary between California and Mexico remains one of the most popular places to cross. Despite two fences, heat sensors, plus an increased number of patrol officers, hundreds of people still try to make it across every day. We will hear the stories of some who have lived their entire lives here in the U.S. yet were deported, failed border crossers, and the Mexican Border Patrol, Grupo Beta, as they go looking for migrants and trying to help them on their way.
