US-Mexico border security beefed up

Immigration reform bill under consideration in US congress calls for increased security along common border.

    A major overhaul of US immigration law is making its way through Congress this week.

    It calls for a huge increase in security along the Mexican border, as a pre-condition to legalising an estimated 11 million undocumented migrants.

    But border guards may not deter deported migrants from trying to get back to their families in the US.
