In a test on our nation's border security, members from an organization out of Virginia successfully got through a security checkpoint in Arizona with no identification.
Two members of The People United, is a group that works on immigrant justice in Virginia, crossed the border from Mexico into Arizona over the weekend. The group says a militarized border does not make communities safer, and that NAFTA policies are driving immigrants to come into the United States to try to earn more money.
"So we believe our true security is going to come when our trade policies, when our foreign policy and our economic policy promotes the ability of everyone to make a decent living in their own communities," says Jeff Winder, who was one of the people to make the crossing.
The two carried a banner through a checkpoint reading "from Mexico to Virginia open borders for all people and justice for all people."
