Synopsis
This documentary explores the historical interaction between the U.S. and Latin America with regard to the immigration debate. Using rarely seen newsreel footage and interviews with prominent migrants from countries in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America, the film puts a human face on an issue too often reduced to vulgar stereotyping.
