With Americans on all sides of the issue up in arms and Congress embroiled in a knock-down-drag-out policy battle over how to move forward, CROSSING ARIZONA tells the story of how we got to where we are today. Heightened security in California and Texas has pushed illegal border-crossers into the treacherous Arizona desert in unprecedented numbers - an estimated 4,500 a day. Most are Mexican men in search of work, but increasingly the border-crossers are women and children seeking to reunite with their husbands and fathers. This influx of migrants crossing through Arizona and the attendant rising death toll have elicited complicated feelings about human rights, culture, class, labor and national security. "Crossing Arizona" examines the crisis through the eyes of those directly affected by it.

It's all about the message
21 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A fairly decent documentary that does a good job of covering almost all the major issues with border crossing and immigration between the United States and Mexico.

While it was quite obvious that it was shot on a low budget, the message is there and it's great to hear the opinions of people living right next to the border. Great points are brought up, both for and against immigration, but above all it does justice to the humanitarian side of the issue. I'm glad there are people out there helping the illegal immigrants live in the desert. While I would rather have legislation that makes it easier for immigrants to safely find work in the United States, there is no reason why people should have to die trying to cross here illegally. It's truly a very sad and complex problem and it desperately needs addressing.
