THE BOLIVIAN DESERT - While the U.S. southern border is still inundated with thousands of illegal border crossings each month, we're not the only country struggling with this issue. The South American country of Chile is being overwhelmed by migrants crossing from Bolivia, and they've deployed their military to try and stop the flow.
Migrants catch rides when they can, and when all else fails, they're making the journey on foot. They're spread out among back roads leading south through Colombia, Peru, and here, in Bolivia. They've left home countries like Venezuela because it's almost impossible to survive on the minimum salary of only $2 a month.
Venezuelan migrant Rodolfo Gomez told us, "Most people don't have a way to survive in Venezuela, so they are looking to leave."
Gomez and his family have already been on the road for months. But they're not headed to the United States. They're headed south, to a country which enjoys the highest standard of living in all of Latin America. And they've trekked through several countries to get there.
He's run out of money, however, so his family occupies this street corner hoping their luck will improve.
