In a human moment that transcends international politics and paperwork, Customs and Border Portection officers help Rosendo Arturo Cabral Lopez, who hesitated before stepping across the line which divides the United States and Mexico, carry his brother's coffin across the border at Nogales.  Lopez thought he would never enter the United States, until a CBP agent pointed and asked him to step across the line.  He knows the only way to come into the United States again would be to follow the path of his deceased brother and cross the border illegally.   (image by Dean Knuth)
