Divided Families: Responding with Faith
A New Documentary from the Chicago Sunday Evening Club
Premieres Thursday, October 16th on WTTW Channel 11 in Chicago
They are looking for the line - But there is no line.
In this hour-long documentary from the Chicago Sunday Evening Club, we explore the impact of current US immigration policies on Amy and Carlos, a young family from West Chicago.
Because Carlos was brought to the US illegally from Mexico as a child, they encounter severe penalties and barriers as they attempt to gain his resident status.
Like thousands of families in this situation, they want to do the right thing, but there seems to be no path to follow.
We tell the story of their decade-long struggle, and highlight the work of faith organizations across Chicago that are working to help families like theirs stay together.
