Life in a town with more Border Patrol agents than residents

Clip: 12/15/2019 | 6m 53s

The number of U.S. Border Patrol agents stood at over 1,700 in 1975, but today nearly 20,000 agents are on patrol as one of the largest and most well-funded enforcement agencies in the country. A new documentary called "Undeterred," sheds light on how the expansion has impacted one small Arizona community along the southern border. NewsHour Weekend's Ivette Feliciano has more.
