TELL OUR TRUTH
After escaping violence and crossing 2,000 miles of jungle and desert terrain, 6,000 migrants from all parts of Central America land at the US/Mexico border in Tijuana. Their dreams crashing against some of the toughest border policies and anti-immigration rhetoric seen in modern times. Camping feet from the gates of "the shining city" many began to wonder if they would ever find a passage across the border and into the safety of the United States.
