People Are Literally Dying to Get into America

An Original Investigative Documentary
Premiering on The Weather Channel

Original Documentary Chronicles Migrants’ Intolerable Journey to The U.S.
On November 11th at 9:00pm EST “The Real Death Valley” will premiere, an original Weather Channel documentary that chronicles the harrowing migrant journey across South Texas that has resulted in hundreds of deaths. This hour-long special will expose on national television Border Patrol’s seeming indifference to migrant 911 distress calls made from the brush and the inexcusable delayed rescue responses that have resulted in death.
This event is a rare opportunity for millions of viewers to see first-hand the injustice and suffering occurring on American soil and the wasted tax dollars for a federal law-enforcement agency that is failing public safety.
In the last 5 years, 407 migrant remains have been discovered in Brooks County alone, which is considered to be a small percentage of the total death toll in the region. The average Border Patrol response time for migrant distress calls in this small area in 2013 was over 2 hours, which proved in some cases to be too little too late. In 2013 and 2014, scores of mass graves containing migrant remains disgracefully co-mingled in trash bags were disinterred from a Brooks County paupers’ cemetery further uncovering the reprehensible treatment of migrants.
