Missing in Brooks County

81 mins


You’ve heard stories of immigrant arrests and detentions, but what about the people who cross our border and are never heard from again? The unforgiving desert landscape of Brooks County, Texas has been the site of more than 2,000 migrant deaths since 2008, the result of a U.S. Border Patrol policy that diverts immigrants into treacherous crossing areas where they often succumb to dehydration and exposure. This film introduces us to many of the families who are desperately seeking lost loved ones, the individuals and organizations assisting them and the “build the wall” supporters who attempt to thwart their efforts.
