This new documentary chronicles the return of immigrant family detention in the United States. The Texas-made film follows our government’s response to refugees and migrants in the creation and expansion of new private prisons for these families in remote and isolated areas of the Southwest. Reversing the progress of the immigrant rights movement and his own previous decisions, President Obama has surpassed the Bush administration in expanding the use of detention centers for refugee families. This history is portrayed and told by the people who live it and shines light on the growing grassroots movement fighting to close these family prisons and welcoming our neighbors with compassion.
Come learn more about immigrant family detention and what we can do to help end this injustice! After the 30 minute documentary, we will hear from Wacoans who have been detained and from our immigrant neighbors.
