Abstract:

Botswana's electric border fence was erected to keep out diseased livestock from neighboring Zimbabwe. It has also proved remarkably effective at stemming the influx of illegal immigrants fleeing economic collapse and political repression. This Wide Angle report examines this frontier flashpoint, profiling both a cattle farmer who strongly supports the fence and illegal immigrants determined to breach it. An interview between Bill Moyers and George Ayittey, Distinguished Economist in Residence at American University, Washington, D.C., rounds out the program. (57 minutes).
