    Though the U.S. government has invested billions of dollars to strengthen security at the U.S.-Mexico border in recent years, hundreds of thousands of people continue to illegally cross the border annually.

Join the CSIS Americas Program as it showcases a German perspective, screening a recently-produced ten-minute feature on the issue following a discussion with featured Deutsche Welle correspondent Max Hofmann.
