Watch This: Illegal

Illegal is a compelling 6-minute documentary about undocumented American youth.  The film was financed, produced, and directed by a diverse team of independent advocates and professionals from across the country.  Through a series of interviews, this short film illuminates the plight of immigrant youth and urges the viewer to confront the tensions and bald injustice embedded in our current immigration policy.

While the Obama administration’s decision to halt deportations of some undocumented residents was an important first step, executive orders are easily changed by successive administrations, and legislative action is necessary to make permanent changes to repair a broken system.

  1. Please edit your page to prevent the video from opening at page load. It’s really, really intrusive. Especially at work, if you follow my drift. Please change it!
