John Larson of PBS' "Need to Know" conducted a five month investigation of an alleged pattern of abuse of immigrants committed on the Southern Border by Border Patrol agents and officers. Such alleged atrocities include physical abuse, sexual assault, torture, and the denial of food, water, and medical attention.

You really need to watch this.
