Friend of the SCNs and documentary filmmaker, John Carlos Frey, checks in with his latest project on harsh realities of immigration.
A few months ago I had the opportunity, along with Current TV correspondent Christof Putzel to document the journey so many migrants take the U.S. We were able to film the harrowing migrant journey from Mexico, across the U.S. Mexico border and into the scorching Arizona desert. Our cameras captured the harsh realities of border security and migrant death and well as a system of abuse and organized crime. Current TV’s award winning documentary series, Vanguard will air this episode tonight. Please check local listings for channel and show time.
