On Sunday, January 20 the Old St. Patrick’s Immigration and Refugee Rights committee presented the film BEYOND BORDERS: Undocumented Mexican-Americans. If you missed this screening, the entire film is available here for free. This deeply moving documentary examines US policy decisions that triggered the rise of undocumented immigration and explores the under-reported lives of Mexicans living and raising families in the United States. The film carefully explains the history of the relationship between the two countries – Mexico and America – some of which may be unfamiliar to viewers. In telling the stories of several undocumented Mexican-Americans, BEYOND BORDERS reveals the reasons why millions of Mexican workers have settled in the United States over the past four decades instead of returning home. It also illuminates the remarkable networks that connect the film’s characters with the families they left behind, and the very real human impact of the anti-immigration backlash now sweeping the country.
