 Description: This video explores the complex topic of Immigration and Immigration Reform. As states view the Federal Government as being incompetent in dealing with this issue they are taking control of the situation themselves and writing harsh state laws designed to remove residents they consider to be here unlawfully. This results in fear for both those who are here lawfully and those who are undocumented. Fear is also a common factor among non-immigrants although for very different reasons. What are the social and economic pitfalls of an enforcement-only approach to immigration? What should the Christian response be to immigration? How does racism factor into the questions and policies regarding immigration? This documentary includes interiews with Bishop Minerva Carcano (UMC), Joe Arpaio, Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, business man Sheridan Bailey and journalist Valeria Fernandez and attempts to present what people on both sides of the immigration question feel. A study guide with discussion questions and devotions is included.
