Actually a well-made, objective documentary! Take a brief listen (or read!)...
24 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the producer has stated, this film wasn't released in theatres. Despite that, I decided to give it a try-- buying it (found it on EBAY for a reasonable price!). The people who gave it a bad review and called it "conservative propaganda" or what have you, clearly saw a title they didn't like-- never watched it. This film does actually accuse both sides of the aisles of letting illegal immigration happen (YES, illegal... not "undocumented").

The director does show that there are illegals who don't really care and just want to find work. This may portray them in a bad way, as it should, but he also shows a sympathetic side of their struggle. Just go on EBAY and buy the film, as it's a well-made, interesting watch. You can't beat the price for such a unique movie. ABSOLUTELY recommended!
