What a great project; at some point in our families, virtually ALL of us are immigrants to this country.
Not all immigrants come to the U.S. because they've come from grinding poverty.
I came to the U.S. because I had the opportunity. It was fun and an adventure for a London secretary to work in New York then San Francisco.
The problem bedeviling the forces battling it out over immigration reform is that each promotes an overly simplistic image of undocumented immigrants. If you listen to the immigrant advocacy organizations, the undocumented are hardworking men and women who do no wrong in their pursuit of a better life.
The idea of getting to know immigrants in a bid to connect human faces and real stories such as these, with the immigration situation in the USA is what led me to embark on this documentary project. Check www.immigrantstudio.tv for more info and please support us.
