WATCH: Witnesses at the Border

Last month, 27 leaders from 17 national Jewish organizations traveled to the U.S.-Mexico border to get a firsthand look at the crisis affecting families, asylum seekers, and others in both countries.

This new video follows the group as they went to bear witness at detention centers, meeting with migrants caught up in an increasingly unfair system and listening to immigration attorneys and humanitarian workers who work with migrants and asylum seekers. The two-day trip to San Diego and Tijuana, led by HIAS and the Anti-Defamation League, left all involved affected by what they saw and inspired to take action.
