So Close to America : Undocumented Farm Workers & The Myth of the Free Ride"

Farmworker realities vs immigrant fear mongering in the days of Trump and beyond.

"They steal our jobs"  "They don't pay taxes"  "They all get on welfare" 
"They don't pay taxes!" "They all come here and get on a free ride!"

We've all heard these claims made by Americans about undocumneted workers,
but are they fact or fiction?

'So Close to America' takes viewers out to farm country, scans the media landscape,
and talks to experts to find out if these oft-repeated claims stand up to hard evidence.

The facts may surprise you.
