ROCKINGHAM CO., N.C. - More than 1,400 miles separate Rockingham County from Hidalgo Co, Texas. Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page made the trip to get a first hand look at immigration problems in Texas.

North Carolina is second in the Southeast - after the Atlanta area - for drug trafficking. Sheriff Page says that's linked to immigration problems.

Thursday, he and six other sheriffs from around the state will go out with Texas Department of Safety agents to see some of the issues and terrain.

Sheriff Page is using vacation time for the trip.
