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 III: Guest Workers
The third film in this series takes viewers into the world of the guest workers brought to help with reconstruction in the Gulf Coast, and examines the impact of these programs on immigrants and African Americans in the region. See the other two films, Part I (The Border) and Part II (Workplace Raids) in this section of the website.
Immigration-Beyond the Headlines was made possible through the generous support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
