ACCORDING TO THE PEW RESEARCH CENTER, MORE THAN 10 PERCENT OF COLORADO’S SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN IN 2014 HAD AT LEAST ONE PARENT WHO IS AN UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT.
750,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients nationwide are now living in extreme uncertainty, because they could have their statuses revoked at any moment.
The world changed on November 8th, 2016 in a terrifying way for children of undocumented immigrants.
When Donald Trump became the President Elect following campaign promises to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), build a wall along the Mexican border and deport millions of immigrants, divisive rhetoric became a potential reality for millions of children, families and the businesses - all humans who are critical parts of our communities and economic ecosystem. Today, so much is unknown: Will President Trump follow through on the promises of Candidate Trump? However, within so much uncertainty there is an opportunity to build public will to resist these proposed measures which would tear families apart and threaten our economy.
Beyond the Wall is a rapid-response film born of a grant Stories Without Borders received from The Fledgling Fund that explores the current political climate through the eyes and voices of the children of undocumented immigrants, their teachers, and business leaders in Denver Colorado.
