It’s a Monday morning. I’m groggily sipping my usual espresso as I skim my emails before getting down to the business of immigration law. An email from a stranger leads me to a page of five finalists in a video contest on immigration in America. The contestants’ films lift my spirits. One talks of how we’re a great nation because we’re different. Another describes the human suffering of American children in the aftermath of a Feb. 2008 raid on a Van Nuys, California, printing supply company. A third shows, humorously but sadly, the perceptions that members of the public often have when visiting a USCIS district office, that of an agency afflicted with ineptitude and indifference, outdated technology, and chaotic file rooms, all covered with a false patina of concern. The fourth involves interviews of Americans living in a small border town who express sincere compassion for the plight of desperate migrants. The last, a student film, is an interview with Lady Liberty. The films are short; but the impression they leave you with is lasting. Take a look. You’ll be touched, and glad you did.
