Homeland: Immigration In America
This documentary series explores one of the most polarizing issues facing America today, immigration. Narrated by Ray Suarez, senior correspondent for the "PBS NewsHour," and produced by the Nine Network of Public Media in St. Louis, it presents contemporary stories of immigrants - legal and illegal - and those who confront them, help them, employ them and those who craft legislation that affects them. The stories reveal the complex economic, political, personal and cultural dilemmas that are often portrayed as simple choices of right or wrong, legal or illegal. Immigration is not just a short-term border state issue; it is a national and local issue with long-term consequences for communities and the nation as a whole.
