This dispatch is from the Rio Grande River, on the Texas side of the U.S. border with Mexico. I embedded with border patrol, to learn about the technology, techniques, and challenges of monitoring a section of the border with over 300 miles of river.
Vox Borders is a new international series focused on telling the human stories that emerge from lines on the map. I’ve traveled to five of six border locations to produce a final set of documentaries. While I travel I’m releasing video dispatches on YouTube and Facebook, documenting my experiences in a vlog that’s independent from the final Vox Borders documentaries.
