Really good story, based on true life events. So traumatic what refugees go through when they arrive in so called safe countries. I realize I suffer from naivety, but I just want people treated with compassion. The majority of those seeking a better life are decent hard working people’s just give them a chance.

For liberals only. "True" story of how horrendous our system of immigration is. Acting was pretty good.

Excellent. Shows plight of the immigrant. The overwhelming burden on the judicial system to hold and process. The humanitarian aspect. That one person can make a difference.
That Americans need to respect and preserve our freedoms.....many people do not enjoy the liberties and freedom of speech that we take for granted.
