I lived in Phoenix, AZ for 10 years. We have to deal with the issue of immigration more so than most other states. It got pretty wild at times but when I watched this documentary I didn't realize how wild it actually was. It is a slightly unsettling feeling to watch this and suddenly blurt out "Oh my gosh, I drive by that place all the time!"
It's pretty easy to judge a social issue you are not personally connected to. Sure, you see the media show the unjust deportation of immigrants just trying to pursue a better life in our borders, and it makes you sad and sympathetic. However, most illegals are connected to a criminal enterprise usually as an exploited victim or as the predatory drug runner/coyote. It's just brutal what the drug cartels and coyote operations do... oftentimes it is just barbaric. They don't stop at anything to exploit and make money. The coyotes regularly assault women in their group to the point the women know to carry protection. The whole cartel-coyote operation is really a crime against basic humanity.
Another maddening aspect of this show is how little care the border patrol gets from the federal government. The career politicians in Washington will not even give them decent living quarters where they have a real bathroom instead of an outhouse! These are people trying to protect our safety from very predatory forces, and I wish my tax money would go to make their jobs easier rather than funding congressmen's lobster dinners, champagnes, and vacations.
It is my hope states in the north and the east better understand the depth of this issue.
