Everyday Borders (dir. Orson Nava) was made by Migrants' Rights Network (MRN), UEL, Southall Black Sisters, RAMFEL and a number of other migrants’ rights groups.

This film screening will be an opportunity to discuss some of the aspects of the new immigration legislation and new requirements for different professions to act as border guards when performing their jobs:

“'Everyday Borders' sets out what is happening in our towns and communities as the business of immigration control extends beyond borders to the relationships that exist in workplaces, the times we use public services like the NHS, as we move around our high streets and public transport systems” – MRN
