This first video production of Deep Dish TV’s Uprooted series examines the issues of Deportation and crossing the border from Mexico to the United States. The U.S.- Mexico border is the most frequently crossed international border. Many of those who traverse it, do so without travel documents, risking their lives to reach the other side. These five portraits, filmed in June of 2009, are the stories of five such Mexican migrants, recently deported to Nogales, Mexico; right across the border from Arizona.
