Outrage continues to grow over the increasingly cruel treatment of immigrants in the U.S. While the Trump administration is more brutal and openly racist than its predecessors, the groundwork for this crisis was created far before Trump took office. Join us for a screening of the 2016 documentary "The Empire's War on the Border" produced by Abby Martin and The Empire Files as well as a discussion on the ongoing and intensifying struggle for immigrant rights.
Discover what is not only a shockingly high body count, but a humanitarian crisis manufactured by the U.S. government. Sinister tactics by a bloated and militarized Border Patrol, a for-profit prison pipeline, and a court system that looks more like a slave auction, all surround the senseless death of thousands.
From NAFTA's impact to hidden camera footage of "Operation Streamline," learn about this U.S. policy of death, and the humanitarian disaster caused by the U.S. deportation machine.
Discussion to follow screening.
