Is "Immigration Nation" the 21st Century "Harvest of Shame"?


We have posted about the Nextflix series Immigration Nation and the efforts by the U.S. government to halt its production.  

CNN's Anderson Cooper talks to "Immigration Nation" co-directors Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau about their Netflix docuseries that goes behind the scenes of the U.S. immigration system.

Will Immigration Nation be the new Harvest of Shame, the 1960 documentary by Edward R. Murrow that showed the plight of U.S. agricultural workers?  An investigative report intended "to shock Americans into action," Harvest of Shame was "the first time that millions of Americans were given a close look at what it means to live in poverty" by their televisions.
