In 1994, the federal government implemented a new plan that focused on deterrence and arrest along our nation's 1,940-mile U.S.-Mexico border.

Horizon takes a trip to the Arizona-Mexico border for a first-hand look at why illegal immigration has been pushed into our state. Senator Jon Kyl joins Michael Grant for an in-studio discussion.
