How immigrants are redefining 'American' in Southern California

Short film: 'Borderland'

Last week, as the furor over Arizona's SB 1070 was coming to a head, the lateĀ True/Slant posted as one of its final items this intriguing short film about border security, as seen through the eyes of two grizzled and armed border residents. One stalks drug runners, another takes pity on migrants being led by smugglers through brutal terrain. For those who live along the fence, many of whom I've met and interviewed, there is nothing abstract about the debate over border security.

True/Slant's all-too-brief run has wound to a close following its acquisition by Forbes Media earlier this year.
