‘Waylaid in Tijuana’, Documentary Virtual Screening
Waylaid in Tijuana is a documentary film that explores how immigration policies adopted in Washington, DC reverberate just south of the border in Tijuana, Mexico. It features migrants and asylum seekers from Haiti and Central America, migration experts, government officials, and migrant advocates from the Tijuana/San Diego region who grapple with the consequences of these policies on a daily basis. This website provides clips from the film, information about future screenings, and an updated set of resources on U.S. immigration policies and migrant advocacy. Read more about the documentary on the official website.
The documentary screening will be followed by a discussion and Q&A from the audience.
