"Migration is Movement: Pittsburghers at the border wall”
A short video about a group of 53 people from Pittsburgh who traveled to the U.S.-Mexico border in Nov. 2018 to protest expansion of the border wall (among other things) with SOAWatch. Their journey took place before the beginning of the partial government shutdown from Dec. 22 - Jan. 25, now the longest in history. The shutdown was largely defined by elected officials' failure to come to an agreement about whether or not to expand the wall.
