Immigration-Beyond the Headlines is a three-part film series produced by Firelight Media to help communities understand and grapple with immigration in a productive way. The three 10-minute films highlight key issues in the current debate and probe the moral and human dimensions of current immigration policy.
Part I: The Border
Part I focuses on migrant workers with an examination of the fierce debate on immigration enforcement in Arizona, both at the border and in the city of Phoenix. See the other two films, Part II (Workplace Raids) and Part III (Guest Workers) in this section of the website.
Immigration-Beyond the Headlines was made possible through the generous support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
