The River and the Wall follows five friends on an immersive adventure through the unknown wilds of the Texas borderlands as they travel 1200 miles from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes.

Hogwash

Incredible one sided piece of liberal propaganda. "We put up such an ugly fence." Why is it ugly? Because it goes against your views? And why are you saying this on camera while sitting in your fenced in backyard in your gated community that no one can access but you and other residents and their "approved" visitors? "This structure will have an impact on the local wildlife." What man made structure in the history of mankind does not have an impact on local wildlife? At one point in the film, the filmmakers make it a point to complain that a bike path was not put while traversing the wall for "bike path people" like them and how they actually had to walk at certain points, and use their hands to carry and wash their bikes off. Yeah why aren't we making the terrain near the wall more easier access and a more level ground. It's also incorrectly stated that we are at net zero illegal immigration when it comes to Mexican citizens illegally crossing but they back it up with zero facts or evidence. Just believe them because they know. It's a joke of a film and Laughable.

Fences does not cause extinction

Animals thrived in the Korean DMZ and that place is littered with landmines and barriers but when Americans put a glorified fence these Open Borders types push like the entire area is going to turn into the barren Martian landscape. Illegal immigrants is an issue in this country because certain politicians want to be in power for as long as they want. Illegal immigrants are a voting stock for the Democratic Party. Yet once again these types are using environment causes to push their real agenda - political power - by any means necessary.

Inaccurate BIASED propoganda

I was told this was a balanced view of the border situation. I could not disagree more. This was a biased propogandist film that appeals to emotions and relies on sensationalism. Yes it is beautiful BEAUTIFUL country. It will not be eradicated as they claim. My favorite OBVIOUS BS was the climbing the wall scene. In am attempt to show the ineffectiveness of the wall, Felipe claims that it's was super easy to climb... Agreed... But let's seem him get down the 40 ft drop.on the other side... Let's see him make that climb from the other side where there is no support beam. How anyone sees that and doesn't recognize the baloney he is propogating is ridiculous. Then they claim that of the 800,000 acres and 300,000 acres of reserve land along the border, and "estimated 1 million acres Will be lost" to "no man's" land. Again how anyone doesn't see the erroneous math here is beyond me. And then they claim that the wall is going to be built 100% from.sea to shining sea. Nobody is proposing a couple complete wall. Where there are natural blindries (like canyons) no wall is needed, yet another example of misrepresentation of the pro-wall argument. This was a nice nature show on the diversity of life, but there is diversity of life everywhere. This is an obvious anti wall propoganda that doesn't tackle the real issues. In closing, the hypocrisy of them in the night scene, being scared and calling border patrol because they fear for their lives because the people crossing, sonits ok for them to call authorities to stop illegal immigration, but then argue against measures to prevent situations necessitating that very call? I am the product of immigrants. Soy Boliviano y vivo en Tejas, pero mis padres vinieron LEGALMENTE. Aprendieron inglés, y trabajaron donde pagaron sus impuestos.... i am very pro immigration... I just don't appreciate being pandered to as if I was too dumb to realize the BS this presented....
