The border between the United States and Mexico has become ground zero of a national debate about immigration. Inspired by recent rhetoric, the makers of the Direct TV/AT&T U-Verse series Religion of Sports — football superstar Tom Brady, football player-turned-TV host Michael Shahan and filmmaker Gotham Chopra — turned their cameras on an exhibition football game between the Tornillo High School Coyotes and the Juarez Titanes, a volunteer football club. The game takes place at the Coyotes’ sparkling new $5 million stadium, a point of pride for the struggling community, which was in the news last year for a detention camp for migrant children. Chopra narrates as the stories of both teams are woven together before the big game.
