In early March 2021 the United States saw a significant increase in the amount of immigrants coming over its borders illegally many of them seeking asylum. Jason Lanier decided to film a documentary to cover this situation to find the truth and reality of the situation vs. what we're being told by media and politicians.
In Episode 21, Jason discusses his journey to document this situation that took him over 2000 miles as he covered the border states of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Jason's exploits took him to travel over to Mexico as well and experience the situation from the other side of the border wall.
Jason went into the heaviest hit areas and spent nearly a week down at the Rio Grande documenting the harrowing journey that immigrants made from the Mexican side of the river over to US soil by way of human traffickers known as Coyotes.
This isn't a political podcast. It's a simple retelling of what Jason experienced from both a photojournalism and a human perspective. Jason talks about the gear that he used to document this journey as well as his experiences with the people involved. This is about all the people involved and is a precursor to the documentary that Jason will release. We hope you enjoy it and thank you for listening.
