Child Migrants, the Incredible Stories You Don’t Hear About

November 4, 2010
Press Release #10-191


Alone, desperate, and persistent, unaccompanied child migrants endeavor to cross the border into the United States illegally. St. Mary's College of Maryland will host a screening of "Which Way Home," a documentary that shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children. Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Democracy, the screening will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, November 10, 2010, in Cole Cinema of the Campus Center.

The film tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year-old Hondurans who desperately try to reach their families in Minnesota, and Jose, a ten-year-old El Salvadoran abandoned by smugglers.

St. Mary's College of Maryland, designated the Maryland state honors college in 1992, is ranked one of the best public liberal arts schools in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. More than 2,000 students attend the college, nestled on the St. Mary's River in Southern Maryland.
