The movement's leaders quickly denounced Forde and claimed they had ejected her from their organization, but in reality they had courted her involvement for years and were deeply involved in helping promote her work right up to the day of her arrest. Indeed, as And Hell Followed With Her: Crossing the Dark Side of the American Border explores, the murders in the desert were the logical outcome of the movement’s Nativist agenda, its dehumanizing and vicious rhetoric, and its delusionary, paranoid worldview, and ultimately, they were its demise. The movement’s very nature insured that it would attract vicious, cold-blooded psychopaths, the embodiment of evil itself. And that was Shawna Forde and her gang.
A harrowing, richly reported portrait of these psychopaths and their ultimate act of hatred, And Hell Followed With Her offers a window into the ugly underbelly of the American anti-immigrant movement and the path down which it hopes to take the nation.
