Get past the rhetoric and experience the reality of the Texas border with a special screening of The Texas Tribune’s short documentary, Beyond the Wall, on Tuesday, March 28, followed by a short panel discussion.
The film puts viewers into the shoes of undocumented immigrants, border patrol agents and a borderland rancher to explore the state's most pressing immigration issues. It was made in conjunction with our yearlong Bordering on Insecurity project. Following the screening, the Tribune's Jay Root will moderate an expert panel discussion exploring the issues and solutions.
- Julián Aguilar, reporter for The Texas Tribune
- Bill Hammond, former CEO of the Texas Association of Business
- A.J. Louderback, Jackson County Sheriff
- Norma Torres Mendoza, DACA Recipient
