VIDEO: The Wall, an Adelante documentary

May 6, 2008 at 2:02 pm 2 comments

Love it or hate it, the idea of building a wall along the Texas-Mexico border to cut down on illegal immigration has gained some steam. So much so that Congress and the president made the Secure Fence Act official in 2006. The law authorizes the federal government to construct hundreds of miles of fences, walls, and other barriers along the border, from San Diego, Calif. to Brownsville, Texas. Many Americans believe this is a necessary step in protecting our nation. But how do people in Brownsville–where the proposed wall was planned to cut across public parks, private property, and even the campus of the University of Texas at Brownsville–feel about it? Adelante’s “The Wall” is a look at the effects of a border wall on the lives of Brownsville residents, including students, land owners, and border enforcement authorities.
