Description

Reporter Melissa del Bosque spent two years trying to obtain video footage and documents to uncover the fatal shooting from a helicopter of two undocumented men and the wounding of another man. Del Bosque also traveled to Guatemala to interview a survivor of the shooting and speak with family members of the men who died. Through the journey, she unravels the legacy of U.S. military involvement in Guatemala and Texas' rush to militarize the border and its deadly outcome on rural Sevenmile Road.
