Video shows people using ladder to cross border

A video taken Monday by a U.S. Border Patrol surveillance camera shows migrants being helped over the border fence with a ladder on the Mexican side near Yuma, Arizona. Agents say most were families traveling with children.

According to a tweet by U.S. Customs and Border Protection more than 110 Central Americans scaled the wall with the assistance of a smuggler with a ladder.

Monday's crossing comes about a week after 376 Central Americans crossed into the United States in southern Arizona.
