LWVADC Movie Matinee: "Separated: Children at the Border" - All Leaguers invited - 2 PM

Movie projector graphic


The LWV of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties is proud to present a viewing of the PBS Frontline documentary "Separated: Children at the Border".

What's happened to the more than 2,000 families who were separated after crossing the U.S. border in 2018? And how did immigration policy in America reach this point?

This documentary examines immigration policy under the Trump and Obama administrations investigates the origins of "zero tolerance", and reveals the journeys and voices of children who were separated from their parents. The film's on-ground reporting also investigates government's handling of migrant children who were separated from their parents after crossing into America "unlawfully". It traces how the U.S.'s immigration policies involving children have played out over the years and why, even for those families who have now been reunited, the scars remain.

See the PBS website for more on the film
