Muriendo por Cruzar (Dying to Cross) is an Emmy Award-winning investigation into the deaths by dehydration of undocumented immigrants in Brooks County, Texas as they traverse inhospitable terrains in order to avoid a Border Patrol checkpoint 70 miles north of the border. In this Telemundo Network documentary we hear the harrowing stories of immigrants and their families, as well as the forensic specialists working to identify their remains and the ranchers and understaffed law enforcement officers on whose territory they cross searching for a better life.

Q&A with Executive Producer Marisa Venegas 
and Professors Inés Casillas and Cristina Venegas.

A reservation is recommended in order to guarantee a seat
