Immigration Reform Part 1: The Minuteman Project

Last year, U.S. border patrol officials arrested more than one million people illegally entering the United States -- nearly half of them along the Arizona border. A loose coalition of citizens recently began patroling the border themselves, arguing the government wasn't offering enough security. NPR's Ted Robbins reports on the civilian volunteers of the Minuteman Project.
