A rich tapestry of faces and cultures, the United States is a nation of immigrants.  Despite being built on the strength of this diversity, problems created by a troubled immigration process, combined with increases in illegal immigration have created a rift in the nations unity-sparking heated debates, demonstrations and calls to action.

Very informative! The film touched every aspect of how illegal’s impact the US and the costs associated with this issue.
-Tracy El Paso TX
The film is excellent and exposes many immigration problems. Some areas or aspects I feel could be exposed more in the film are interior immigration problems or problems not necessarily along the border but in the interior U.S.
