Review by Hector Palacios (posted on 14-Nov-2007)

The production is low budget but that is not a bad thing. They address an issue that is very important: the important role that immigrants play in every day life in the USA. The USA is what it is today because if immigration, since colonial times. Sure, not all people comming in are exceptional hardworkers and geniuses, but they are not all bad either. What if Native Americans would have decide that since some of the colonists where bad, they where going to make it extra difficult for immigrants to get in and stay. And the way the USA almost stops when all immigrants disappear shows how much they are needed. I mean there are very few American that would take on the jobs some immigrants have, but these jobs are what keep the USA clean and running. But hey, maybe some day immigrants will find out that it is easier and even cheaper to get to europe find a legitimate job and live there, and the USA will stop worring about immigrants.
