Border Wars

Authored by Oswaldo Blackburn

My husband and I are totally into our new direct TV service. We can’t get enough of this show we started watching, Border Wars. The show is mainly about crime on the U.S.-Mexico border. We live in San Antonio, so we aren’t right on the border, but we’re pretty close. It’s amazing to see that only a few hours away there are people risking their lives to cross the border illegally. Sometimes when they catch people, they tell their stories, and some of them are really interesting. The show doesn’t focus on that though, it mostly shows drugs being trafficked across the border. On one episode we saw the El PasoPolice department seize a whole eighteen-wheeler filled with marijuana and cocaine! When we moved down here I thought it would be fun to be so close to Mexico and experience another culture. Once we started meeting people and asking about places to go, they started telling us that it wasn’t safe to cross the border. I had no idea how bad it has gotten down there. It’s sad to see that our southern border has become so dangerous.
