This episode had promise but it missed the target. The show was about a person who forms part of the Minutemen, a volunteer border watch group, to spend 30 days in the home of an illegal immigrant family. While it was a good idea to put a face on the illegal immigrant, the episode did not answer any important questions.
First of all, the individual chosen to live in the illegal immigrant household was CUBAN. Nobody asked him the hardest question of them all: Why isn't he doing his part along the Florida border? Illegal immigrants come in through Florida all the time? Why wasn't he on the Beach keeping illegal immigrants out in that neck of the woods? Secondly, what did this man do for a living that afforded him so much time to spend watching others along the border? Didn't he have a job that he needed to report for? Thirdly, this man was carrying a gun. Nobody asked this person why he had a gun if all the Minutemen were supposed to be doing is reporting illegal crossings.
The show was close but no cigar! More could have been done with it! More serious questions could have been addressed.
