The 800 Mile Wall | John Carlos Frey | Mexican Border Fence

The Fence

Since the beginning of the so called “Operation Gatekeeper” more than 5,000 immigrants have died trying to cross the border to find work in the United States of America. This documentary film by John Carlos Frey exposes the folly and inhumanity of the 800 mile wall along the Mexican border. Excerpt:

“From 2007 to 2009, I followed the construction of what is now close to 800 miles of border security infrastructure along the U.S.-Mexico international boundary. What I found was a mess. Dozens of environmental laws were being waived in order to acquire land to build the new border walls. New technology for border security enforcement was over-priced and non-functional. The natural landscape was permanently scarred to ‘protect’ us from migrants. The assessment from scholars, government agencies and even the border patrol was that this multi-billion dollar effort was not going to solve America’s immigration problems. All of these details on their own would have made a compelling documentary. But there was something even more conspicuous and tragic than the blunders and cost overruns: increased border security was proving to be a massive killer.”
