Honouring immigrant lives lost crossing Arizona's deadly desert

Many of the 3,000 immigrants who have died in the past 15 years trying to cross the Arizona desert have gone unidentified and unremembered, but activists and officials are trying to change that.

    Alvaro Enciso plants crosses to remember those who died trying to traverse the Sonoran Desert, but he says he does not have enough.

    In Arizona, activists and officials have spent years compiling a so-called "death map", tracking the lives lost in what is nothing short of a humanitarian crisis.

    The data is being used to help identify the more than 3,000 who died attempting trying to cross into the United States.
