El Fronterizo

Juarez has become an epicenter in Mexico's drug war, and that's had a profound effect on people like David Romo. He's from El Paso, Texas, but he calls himself a fronterizo - someone from two sides of a border. As a child he visited Juarez every weekend to see family and friends. Now, because of immigration laws and increasing violence, the bridge he used to cross so frequently has become a militarized barrier. David hasn't been to Juarez in years. He talks with guest host David Brown about how a trip to Israel made him first see his own home as a divided war zone.
