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 II: Workplace Raids
The second film in this series reveals the human face of deportations, and follows the experiences of an immigrant mother who was detained during the 2007 raid at a manufacturing plant in New Bedford, Massachusetts. See the other two films, Part I (The Border) 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.
