FCDP Movie Night: Frontline Seperated: Children at the Border
September 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Fresno Democrats for movie night. We will be screening FRONTLINE’S documentary Separated: Children at the Border won a 2019 George Foster Peabody Award on Tuesday, the second FRONTLINE film to win the prestigious award this year.
The film, which won in the news category, investigated the origins and impact of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. From producer Marcela Gaviria and correspondent Martin Smith, the documentary traced what happened to children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, examined the immigration policies of both the Trump and Obama administrations, and found that separations were happening to families who crossed the border illegally months before “zero tolerance” was officially announced.
