This is the trailer for Witness at the Border, the sequel film to the award-winning documentary, Witness at Tornillo.

American volunteers in Matamoros, Mexico are the only lifeline for Central American refugees caught between two governments hostile to their situation.

As the U.S. asylum courts deny their claims and the Mexican government takes daily steps to make camp life difficult, the refugees and volunteers hang on together waiting for justice.
