New documentary asks who benefits from unauthorized immigration to the United States

The Second Cooler, a film by Ellin Jimmerson and narrated by Martin Sheen, is a documentary about the struggle for migrant justice.  Although the film primarily focuses on Arizona, the issues it highlights are very relevant right here in North Carolina: anti-immigrant state policies, the abuses in the H-2B and H-2A guestworker programs, the lack of way for poor Mexicans to legally immigrate to the United States, and the devastating impact of free trade agreements on Mexico driving Mexicans to migrate north.

Check out the trailer below and then follow this link to purchase the whole movie.  As an added bonus, purchasing the video through that link means you are supporting the work of the North Carolina Justice Center on behalf of immigrants in North Carolina as Ellin Jimmerson has agreed to share a portion of the proceeds with us. Thanks for your support!
