ComingsNGoings: Immigration Event
January 25, 2016, 6pm - 8pm, New York, NY. The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) will hold special screening of 'El Paso,' - a new film from executive producer Roberto Garza and director Everardo Gonzalez. The movie follows two journalists who are forced to flee Mexico after they and their families experience violence and receive death threats from organized criminal groups. The film takes the audience on a journey through impunity and violence in Mexico, and reveals that political asylum does not necessarily provide an easy solution.
