John Carlos Frey is a four-time Emmy Award–winning investigative reporter and a special correspondent for PBS’s NewsHour. In 2010, his reporting on migrant deaths by drowning in the All American Canal prompted the installation of new safety features. In 2015 he received an Emmy for "The Real Death Valley," a Weather Channel/Telemundo documentary about slow 911 response times by U.S. Border Patrol agents. The reporting prompted an increase in search and rescue personnel by 150 agents; migrant deaths in the area were reduced by more than 30 percent.
