The father of a Colombian family is suddenly deported after living in New York City for 20 years. A former ICE officer describes a massive raid on a factory that employs 500 undocumented workers. A Russian-born lesbian flees persecution and is finally sworn in as an American citizen. These are just some of the stories told to the camera and presented in We Are Witnesses: Becoming an American, a new film by The Marshall Project that illustrates the reality of the US immigration system today. A panel discussion and audience Q&A follows the screening.
