"America is a nation of immigrants." You've probably heard that before. 

But the conversation around immigration today — and the policies, politicians and pundits that go with it — is constantly evolving. 

We partnered with The Marshall Project to create a series of stories straight from the mouths of people who've been directly affected by the U.S. immigration system.

"We Are Witnesses: Becoming An American" introduces us to lawyers, judges, Border Patrol agents and immigrants — both the documented and undocumented. 

Newsy also invites viewers to a panel discussion and screening in Chicago on Tuesday, March 12. Click here for more information.
