Documentary Traces Journey of Mexican Transgenders Seeking Asylum in America

Here's a documentary I would like to throw my support behind:
"Crossing Over" tells the story of three strong transgender women from Mexico, who left their country to seek refuge in the United States due to abuses (mental, physical and sexual) inflicted upon them in their home country. They sought political asylum in this country in hopes of starting a better and safer life for themselves. We believe that our film sheds light on a very important topic, the most important aspect being, under what circumstances it is necessary that someone be granted citizenship because their life is literally at risk.
Watch the powerful trailer and consider making a donation HERE.
