The Border: Border Patrol takes to Mexican radio to discourage border crossers

Green Valley News: "U.S. Border Patrol agents are going on the offensive against human smuggling. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin said he spoke on Mexico City radio Thursday telling listeners that the desert is more dangerous than coyotes tell them; that walking distances from the border to Tucson or Phoenix are far greater than they are told; that the coyotes are connected to cartels that are likely to assault or extort them; that jobs are few; that their odds of escaping capture are dropping fast; and that they will face consequences if arrested, unlike in the past.
