Rally On The U.S.-Mexico Border / by Maria Hinojosa | February 3, 2011

Rally On The U.S.-Mexico Border

In the past three years, drug-related violence in the Mexican city of Juarez has taken more than 7,000 lives. About 200 of the victims were Americans, among them students, teachers, nurses, and government employees. Juarez is the deadliest city in Mexico. And only a chain link fence separates it from El Paso, Texas.

Last week, that fence was just a formality as hundreds of people from both sides of the border joined together to raise awareness. Monica Ortiz Uribe reports that’s not an easy task.
