Border life comes alive in ‘The Arroyo’

‘The Arroyo’ trailer

A new film directed by managing editor Jeremy Boreing is getting rave reviews from moviegoers who live along the U.S.-Mexico border, and getting panned by pro-immigration types.

‘The Arroyo’ tells the story of a rancher who lives near the border. Frustrated by federal and local governments who do nothing to stop the men smuggling immigrants across his land, he reaches his breaking point when he finds a dead child the smugglers leave behind. He takes the law into his own hands, and ends up squaring off against a drug cartel hitman.


The world premiere of The Arroyo was held January 21st in Lubbock, Texas. A majority of the filming took place in Lubbock and Garza counties and much of the onscreen talent was drawn from the area. Audience reactions were strong, and the film was held over for a third week after a string of sold-out showings.

In interviews with Lubbock’s local Fox station, Boreing expressed his hopes that the film would put a face on the human tragedy playing out on the American border and help voice the need for a hard look at current border policies.

KTTH host Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of TruthRevolt, said that ‘The Arroyo’ correctly predicted the downfall of Virginia U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, as voters grow weary of lawless immigration policy.
