Watch It Now: What’s Really Happening at the Border?

Every year on June 6th we commemorate the MS St. Louis, a ship bearing refugees fleeing Nazi Germany which was turned away from the United States in 1939. Many of the passengers later perished in the Holocaust.

Philippe Weisz, HIAS Pennsylvania’s Co-Director of Legal Services, discussed what is really happening at the US-Mexico border, how it is imperative that we welcome people to our shores, and how to advocate for asylum-seekers with HIAS PA’s Executive Director, Cathryn Miller-Wilson, during today’s Facebook Live Ask Me Anything!
