    Republicans and Democrats still can't agree on the steps that should be taken to secure the Southern border. It seems the only thing the two parties agree on is that there is a problem, however, what needs to be done, much less how to do it or pay for it is a continuing battle. FOX's Leland Vittert reports.

FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a sixth and final suspect has been arrested in connection with a human smuggling operation that left one man dead in Tucson.

Pinal County Sheriff's officials say 39-year-old Gerald Alan Turner was taken into custody Thursday in Phoenix. He's being held on suspicion of homicide, kidnapping and human smuggling plus a parole violation.

Authorities didn't immediately know Friday if Turner has a lawyer.

Sheriff's officials say eight heat exhaustion victims were found July 7 in the back of a U-Haul van at an Interstate 10 gas station at Picacho Peak northwest of Tucson.

1 of the eight - a man from Mexico - died days later at a Tucson hospital.

Three men and two women believed to be members of the smuggling ring were arrested earlier this month.
