Film: Paper Children (Niños de papel): Inside America’s Overwhelmed Asylum System
September 21, 2022 @ 7:15 pm - 8:20 pm
Love brings a family together. Will a system tear them apart?
Una familia unida por amor. ¿Logrará un sistema separarlos?
Every year, tens of thousands of unaccompanied children flee violence in Central America to seek asylum in the US. The journey is never easy– and once they arrive, there are no guarantees that they’ll be able to stay. Paper Children follows one family’s struggle to build a better future in America despite overwhelming circumstances.
