New VICE Documentary Revisits Murder of Raul Flores and 9-year-old Daughter by Border Vigilantes

Posted By on Mon, Dec 4, 2017 at 12:56 PM

The brazen double-murder of Raul Flores and his 9-year-old daughter Brisenia by an anti-immigrant racist is captured in VICE's newest documentary.

The 41-minute movie, titled Murder at America's Border: the Story of Anti-Immigrant Vigilante, covers the crime, committed by former Minuteman leader (dressed in Border Patrol garb) Shawna Forde and a handful of other vigilantes. Forde and her crew killed Raul and Brisenia and shot Raul's wife Gina (the lone survivor) during a brazen invasion of Flores' Arivaca home way back in 2009.

The slayings sent shockwaves through the nation, and touched off a vitriolic chapter in Arizona and American history that's still being dealt with today.

VICE host Chris Herde takes us through the crime, and its effect on the small border community in the documentary (which you can watch above).
