Dignity for Immigrant Detainees: First Friends of NJ & NY(0:11:13) Dignity for Immigrant Detainees: First Friends of NJ & NY chronicles the heart-wrenching journey of asylum-seekers and refugees who have found themselves in the clutches of New Jersey's for-profit immigrant detention centers, as well as the courageous activists who are seeking to restore their dignity from the other side of the prison walls. Filmed over the course of two years by Mike McLean, an award-winning activist, filmmaker, and teacher, this short documentary illuminates the gamut of emotions endured in New Jersey's struggle for immigrant rights, and challenges audiences to confront the hidden injustices of our region’s detention centers.

Hotel U.S.A.(0:10:43) An airport motel off of I-95 is an unlikely haven for asylum seekers during their first hours in America. And yet, after their long journeys, this is where many refugees will spend their very first night in this country, before taking connecting flights to their final point of resettlement. “Hotel U.S.A.” captures a group of newcomers during their first moments in the country, exploring the sense of loss and hope that pervades the refugee experience. Millions of refugees vie for entry to the United States, but only the lucky few are approved for resettlement here. Their journeys, organized by the International Organization for Migration, a non-governmental agency, are long and exhausting. When they finally arrive on our shores, a new life filled with uncertainty lies ahead.
