Nouveau Poor: Immigrant Poverty

The “golden door” exalted at the Statue of Liberty still beckons the world’s poor. Once inside the U.S., however, most immigrants accept a lifestyle that is anything but glittering. This program reveals the conditions in which an American newcomer, legal or not, struggles to earn a living, save money, and meet basic needs. Featuring interviews with numerous immigrants from Latin America and Africa, the film illustrates their experiences with entrenched racism, unfairly low wages, the lack of a social safety net, few if any economic resources, and crowded, substandard housing. These individuals also describe the goals that drive them—education and a better future for their loved ones—and the equally important work ethic with which the majority of immigrants approach their jobs. Several scholars contribute their expertise as well. A part of the series Poverty in America. (41 minutes)
