FALFURRIAS, TX - MAY 22: An anthropology team inspects the skeleton of a suspected undocumented immigrant after they exhumed the bones from a gravesite on May 22, 2013 in Falfurrias, Brooks County, Texas. In Brooks County alone, at least 129 immigrants perished in 2012, most of dehydration while making the long crossing from Mexico. Teams from Baylor University and the University of Indianapolis are exhuming the bodies of more than 50 immigrants who died during their journey. The bodies will be examined and cross checked with DNA sent from Mexico and Central American countries, with the goal of reuniting the remains with families. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
