If you know me, you know that I'm passionate about rights for undocumented immigrants. I refuse to even use the word "illegal" because that is a government construct. How can a person be illegal? They can certainly be without immigration papers, or undocumented, but not illegal. Language matters.
I heard about this documentary, currently opening at the Sundance Film Festival up in Park City, on the radio and was intrigued. The preview, shown below, is worth a few minutes of your time.
