They started letting foreigners out today but it's not Americans because I guess we're not as important as we thought, Utah resident Susan Beseiso, to CBS News.

The American Embassy and the State Department haven't called us since the last time we went to the border and got bombed four times.

They haven't been communicating with us or doing anything to get us out, Utah resident Susan Beseiso, to CBS News.
