Calvin Harris, Benny Blanco, and Miguel have joined forces for the video “I Found You / Nilda's Story,” which chronicles the journey of a Honduran woman, Nilda, and her two-year-old son, Keyden, as they traveled from their native country to the U.S.
The powerful visual shows scenes from Honduras, Mexico, Texas, and New York, which were significant markers in Nilda’s journey. The video is part of the launch of Brooklyn Defenders, RAICES, and the ACLU’s new immigrant assistance fund, called the While They Wait campaign, which includes a “call to action to help raise awareness and support for immigrants, particularly those seeking asylum and/or facing family separation.”
There are currently more than one million immigrants—as well as 300,000 asylum seekers—living in the U.S., who are undergoing the proper steps to become legal immigrants. Nilda’s journey is just one of many, many stories.
