Watch it Now: Illegal Border Crossing Simulation from VBS.tv

The good folks at VBS.tv are, in my opinion, some of the best documentarians in the world.  They go after ridiculous and unthinkable stories gonzo style, resulting in a humanistic view of incredible tragedies, and incredibly weird topics.  A couple months ago I posted the riveting, and extremely disturbing, Vice Guide to Liberia.  Next, in a series of VBS videos I plan to post, is this documentary on a service that offers a simulated illegal border crossing from Mexico into the United States, complete with a shady ‘coyote’ guide and potential arrest.

    Man, that’s weird… I’d never heard of that place before but I just Googled it for a little more info. I can hardly believe it’s real! Gunshots, fake deaths… What a fucking weird state of affairs.
