About

Immigration: Beyond the Headlines is a three-part film series produced by Firelight Media to help communities understand and grapple with immigration in a productive way. The three 10-minute films highlight key issues in the current debate and probe the moral and human dimensions of current immigration policy.

Part II: Raid in New Bedford

The second film in this series reveals the human face of deportations, and follows the experiences of an immigrant mother who was detained during the 2007 raid at a manufacturing plant in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

See the other two films, Part I (Battleground Arizona) and Part III (Guest Workers in the Gulf).

Immigration: Beyond the Headlines was made possible through the generous support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
