This (Illegal) American Life

There are 12 million people living unlawfully in the United States. In this film Mariana van Zeller explores the lives of two of them: a senior at UCLA named Ilse who crossed the border from Mexico in the trunk of a car at age 3 and a strawberry picker named Filemon who lives in an Oxnard flophouse with 19 other people so that he can send money back to his family in Oaxaca.

In their stories, van Zeller finds testament to both the power of the American Dream and the absolute failure of American border policies.

  • Steph Curry

    send them all back…they don’t come here to be Americans….they come here to take advantage of the system and send money back to Mexico, Central America, South America….their loyalties lie in their home country not the US….if they want to stay they can serve in the Army….its blatantly unfair to the millions who try to immigrate legally
