    They ride freight trains up through Mexico. They call that route La Bestia, the Beast, and there's a pretty good Mexican documentary by that title on DVD. They usually don't fall into the hands of the narcos until they get ready to cross. They stage in Altar, Sonora, the narcos cross 'em and take them to safe houses in Phoenix where they extort the immigrants and their families.

    The free market is not the solution, the free market is the problem.
