The Americans with Charlie LeDuff: Immigration across the Rio Grande

MCallen, Texas - An onslaught of immigrants are at the southern border. Washington's fighting over it and American taxpayers are paying for it. The families and tens of thousands of kids are left in limbo.

What do you do with them?

Charlie LeDuff is just back from the banks of the Rio Grande to show us the scope of a very serious situation. 

We're talking about 100,000 women and children coming up from central America and nobody knows what to do with them, so we're letting them go. Why? The answer's pretty simple: Washington, D.C.

Play the video in the player to get a full report from The Americans with Charlie LeDuff.

We haven't seen a wave of women and children like this since 2001 when LeDuff crossed the border with the Mexican cartel. You've got it find it outrageous that 12 years after 9/11 and hundreds of billions of dollars later in homeland security spending, we're right back where we started.

Play the Daily Minute bonus video to see just how easy it is to get a knife on a plane.

    Rob Greenfield despises shoes. He despises money. Most of all he despises waste. So in order to point out the colossal disposal of perfectly good food in America Greenfield is peddling solo across the country and dining solely from dumpsters.

    LeDuff: There are conflicting accounts about what happened between the cop and the teen.   There is no videotape and so we may never know what really happened. But after getting an unprovoked beating with a traffic cone in Ferguson myself, I wondered what it must be like to be on the other side of the shield.
