Storyline

"Which Way Home" is a feature documentary film that follows unaccompanied child migrants, on their journey through Mexico, as they try to reach the United States. We follow children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year old Hondurans, who are desperately trying to reach their parents in the US.; children like Jose, a ten-year old El Salvadoran, who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center; and Kevin, a canny, streetwise fourteen-year old Honduran, whose mother hopes that he will reach the U.S. and send money back to her. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. They are the children you never hear about; the invisible ones. Written by Anonymous

Current Immigration Conditions
16 July 2014 | by blakestkhSee all my reviews

In light of the invasion at the Southern border of the United States going on now, my niece suggested I watch this movie. My heart is saddened and heavy for these children. I see that movie was made several years ago so I wonder where are they today? Did they ever actually make it into the country? The abject poverty in each country among the people is horrifying. The family conditions that these children grew up in is horrifying. The pain that these children grew up in is horrifying. It's hard to even comprehend children having to live this way. The two 9-year-olds were heart-breaking. What happened to them? Where is Kevin today? What is he doing? Why don't the leaders of these countries do something for their people? I know there is corruption with their governments and drug cartels, but these leaders can't change that? Or won't?

Yes, America is a nation of immigrants. America has a system for immigrants to come here. I have family who immigrated to this country in the past several years. They came here legally and worked to do what they needed to become citizens. We can't just let THOUSANDS of unaccompanied children stream into our country as they are doing right now on our Southern borders!! It is impossible for us to take care of them all. We can't sustain that as a country!!

Certainly our immigration system needs updating but we HAVE to secure our borders FIRST.
