"I hope people can remember the history of what our country is based upon, and maybe have a more compassionate view toward people who are attempting this journey now." -Rebecca Cammisa, Director, "Which Way Home"

Border Sweet Border is an inside view of an immigration hearing showcasing the reality of the “waiting game” that five of 11.5 million undocumented go through. They will be taking us on their journey from different places, different turmoil, but always the same trial.

A journey is what makes us who we are. By presenting the narratives of these individuals we hope you understand why these 11.5 million people had to leave there and have to stay here. In this way, we hope to cut the metaphorical border between us and them, leading to a place where we can address the physical border.
