On the other side, a truck is seen in the same area. There was a man named "Sam" inside who was taking alcoholic drink. "Sam" also had a dog, and the two were good friends. "Sam" had come to chase for a rabbit for lunch. So he fires his rifle to hunt the rabbit. All Mexican migrants begin to run to save their lives, hearing the firing. Because they know that they have come here unlawfully. There was a scorching heat in the whole desert. After a time, they begin to feel thirst. Being exhausted, they begin to have rest, sitting at a place. After a time, they move ahead towards their destination. Then "Sam" is shown who is stopped by US military officer.

Police officer says to him, No! There is not such a matter. You should keep away from the border! "Sam" says to the police officer, I have heard a news that, Mexican migrants intrude in USA unlawfully , passing this way. Police officer says to him, I did not hear such a news! Afterwards, police officer leaves from there. And "Sam" also moves ahead to hunt a rabbit. He finds a handkerchief there. And he lets it be sniffed by his dog. And he orders his dog, Quick! Find out! Hearing it, that dog runs towards that direction. Where Mexican migrants are advancing to USA while crossing the border. Because that handkerchief belonged to one of the migrants. "Sam" also follows his dog. He observes that a few Mexican migrants have entered USA unlawfully . There were not all migrants but five were hidden somewhere. They also call other migrants and ask  to stop. But they don't stop. Because they had knowledge that there is threat in this area. So they wanted to move from there as soon as possible.
