“Borderland,” a new series on Al Jazeera America, follows six Americans as they retrace the steps of migrants who died while crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. The show juxtaposes reality-show tactics with the sobering presence of its host, the real-life chief medical examiner of Pima County (where the highest concentration of migrant deaths has occurred since 1999).
