Behind all the rhetoric and political discourse about President Trump's proposed wall along the US-Mexico Border are real people who would be affected by it – border patrol agents, ranchers and undocumented immigrants.

A new documentary called Beyond the Wall aims to put viewers in the shoes of those people as it explores the complex issues around immigration. The film is produced by The Texas Tribune, which will host a screening of it followed by a panel discussion Thursday (June 8, 2017) from 6-8 p.m. at South Texas College of Law, Houston.

Michael Hagerty learns more about the film and who will be involved in the discussion from Texas Tribune reporter Julián Aguilar.

The screening is part of a larger conference happening in Houston called Mobilizing Coherent Community Responses to Changing Immigration Policy, June 7-9, 2017 (you do not need to be registered for the conference to attend the film screening).
