In the Big Bend area of West Texas, the historic border crossings in Boquillas,
Santa Elena, and Paso Lajitas are shut down by United States’ Homeland Security, devastating communal bonds which have existed on both sides of the Rio Grande for generations. Mexiphobia tells the story of a struggle to maintain a way of life. Showing us how to build bonds instead of barriers between neighbors, the film is a discussion on how to effectively protect our borders.
