Brooks County, home of the busiest immigration checkpoint in the U.S., is in the middle of the biggest human rights crises facing the United States. However, because of the county’s location 70 miles north of the border, it receives no federal funding to deal with the massive wave of immigrant deaths. Eduardo Canales, director of the South Texas Human Rights Center, is waging a lonely battle to curb the escalating number of immigrant deaths and save the county money by convincing members of the community to provide water for people dying of thirst.
