Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano testifies about her most recent factfinding visit with Mexican officials, and also about the status of a Bush Administration-ordered "virtual fence", which many in government now consider an expensive failure.

Thad Bingel, a former Chief of Staff at Customs and Border Protection, explains what's at stake.
