Border Patrol Agent's Death Rekindles Immigration Issue

PBS NewsHour talks to Christopher Conover and Michel Marizco about the state of border security

With the midterm campaign season in the rear-view mirror and issue ads fading from memory, the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in Southern Arizona this week shone a new light on illegal immigrant traffic across the U.S.-Mexico border. He was killed in a gunfight with border bandits on Tuesday night.

For more on the story, PBS NewsHour talked to AZPM's own Christopher Conover and Michel Marizco of the Fronteras/Changing America Desk.
