Trailer: Between a Wall and a Hard Place

“Only in America” is taking a journey across the U.S.-Mexico border to see what attempting to enter the U.S. is like, what happens when migrants arrive, and how current border policies only create more disorder for migrants and Americans.

We’ll take a look at the how migrants often find themselves fleeing desperation and crossing into chaos — and how policies intended to incite fear are only making the situation worse.

By focusing on enforcement-only policies, policymakers think it will deter migrants from crossing. But we’ll hear from guests about the human consequences of disorderly policies, the chaos it’s creating on both sides of the border as asylum-seekers wait in Mexico, and what an ideal future for the U.S.-Mexico border could look like.
