The fight to control

illegal immigration isn't just

on our borders... Lawmakers in Arizona

passed a sweeping overhaul...

In a few months, president

Obama will push

legislation to legalize the

nation's 12 million illegal immigrants.

...I feel bad when the bus is leaving--

And I know that he's there.

Illegal immigration...

America's 21st century dilemma.

It's estimated that more than

a million illegal immigrants

enter the U.S. every year.

They face countless dangers.

Some succumb to dehydration

and exposure.

Some fall victim to human

traffickers and warring

drug cartels.

And others...

Simply disappear.

Why do they risk their lives?

Because the American dream's

still so powerful.

Hey, Spielberg.

We get it. Come on, man.

Got a headache.

Dude, dude, guys, check out

the bullet holes in that sign.

I feel like a bear took a

sh*t in my head.

Hey, Brad, can you pull over,




Brad, pull... Brad.



Hey, we do need to shoot some

b-roll on that.

Pull the sh*t over, Bradley.

Thank you.

No, no, no, no.

We're already late.

How do you be late?

We're in Mexico.


What? I'm sor--, I had a big

night last night, O.K.?

I slept in.

Because... Sake bombs.

Where were you, by the way?

Uh, you didn't invite me,



Next time.

Next time, definitely... maybe.

What's up, kid?

Guys... I think that

kid took my wallet.

What are you drinking there?

Electrolytes, bro.

You look like sh*t. Mmm.

I love being around creative people

like you guys; You're so, like,

in the moment.

So... Brad.

Where are you from again?

Uh, well, I was actually born in Dallas.

And, and, and how long did

you live in London?

I was in London for about a year.

A whole year?

Travis, don't you...

Have anything to do?

Keep yourself busy?

No, this is all I got to do

right now, actually.

It works out nice.

Babe, babe, I can handle

myself, all right?

Yeah, west Texas boys could be

quite rambunctious.

How do you say "suck my cock"

in an English accent?

Suck on my cock.

Suck on my cock.

Suck, suck on my cock.

Suck on my cock.

Cock, cock, cock... Suck on my cock.

I'm the queen of england.

I suck cock... With Brad.

You know what's really funny?

She actually hates London.

Didn't you say that?

You, you hated...? No, I

just hated London with you.

Ooh... get a little e.C.U.

On that one.

Excuse me, Mr. Whitaker.

No comment.

What's your response to the

allegations you ran a sweatshop

of illegal immigrants?

I run a family business.

A family business.

That's very noble of you, sir.

Does a family business threaten

and intimidate their employees?

Does it deny their workers

safety equipment?

Does it fire them when they're

injured on the job?


Get that camera out of my face!

Mr. Whitaker, what about

Miguel Gonzales, the man that

you crippled?

Was he family?

Would you apologize to him?

Car troubles?

I have a Mexican friend,

he can fix that.

He's a citizen though, is that

gonna be an issue?

Did you get that?

Tell me you got that.

...all right, let's get going.

Got everything.

O.K., I'll ping you.

All right.

That sound good?


Be safe.

See you back in Austin, babe.



Bye, babe.

Hey, later Brad.

Let's hang out.

Yeah? No.


Guys, guys, this is my cousin


...my friends...

This guy is the director.

Yo, man.

Hi, Liz.

Yeah, Liz.


No, no, no, no, no.

No touch, no touch.

No touch-ey.

Whoa, whoa...

So, how much is, uh, how much

is this trip costing you?

Much... eh... eh, si...

Yes, yes.

...my daughter.
