BATON ROUGE - On the banks of the Mississippi River, on the other side of the railroad tracks, and near the Pentagon Barracks, dozens of tents sit hidden inside the brush.

They've been there for months, and the people that call it home say they can't get jobs in order to afford a roof over their heads.

Tonight on News 2 at 6 p.m., we'll show you how people are living on the other side of the tracks.
