Divided Mexican families meet at border

Stricter controls have made it harder for undocumented immigrants in the US to meet their loved ones.

    The US-Mexico border has been heavily fortified in recent years, reducing opportunities for families of undocumented immigrants to meet with loved ones back home.

    For them, border fences, where relatives can at least see each other and talk, are often the only place where they can be reunited.
