I am very grateful that I had a chance to contribute to the creation of a documentary about Governor Ann Richards. It was an incredible gift. Recently, I have been asked a lot why I would invest in a creation of a movie. Here are 4 reasons:
Curry Glassell was the executive producer of Illegal Movie.
Through a series of interviews with undocumented kids, activists, policymakers, non-profit leaders, educators and members of the clergy Illegal seeks to raise the consciousness level of the American public regarding the importance of full immigration reform beginning with the Dream Act.
Though an important step was taken with the president's order to halt the deportations of some young undocumented residents, we must remember that his executive order could change as early as January under a new administration. What is necessary is a law that provides a path to citizenship for these young people. Our work is far from over.
