Crisis on the border

In 2018, the US Army mobilized Captain Pinsker and sent him to the US/Mexico border. There, he was designated a federal special prosecutor and handled cases dealing directly with the border crisis including human trafficking, drug smuggling, and more. Matt Pinsker shares what he saw and did, and how there is a huge difference between what the media reports about and what is actually happening at the border. This topic is also covered by Matt C. Pinsker’s book, “Crisis on the Border.”
