From the rough Mexican border to the mean streets of new York and it's -- leafy suburbs where illegal immigrants take jobs from American workers.
The builders -- used to hire me and my guys.
Come -- he had to get the cheap way -- And that got me right out of the picture now my tax -- American citizens aren't paying the bills anymore who's trying to build these guys.
They get did -- they send it back golf.
What you're looking at right over there his -- feels -- -- -- cartel headquarters.
For distribution of drugs in this I would tell you you don't hear it and he did.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But according to the filmmakers it has been impossible to get the mainstream media's attention.
Joining us now from New York is the filmmaker Dennis Michael lynch.
-- pretty provocative stock fashion.
It's not all that surprising to me because.
I've been covering this issue for many years and interviewed ranchers and property owners and and people who bet on the front lines Border Patrol.
But -- the last year not a political guy right you're not somebody -- -- back and then -- lobbying for immigration amnesty or any other way around from warrant for enforcement.
You're just a filmmaker.
Yeah I mean I'm not a -- hum I'm not.
I'm not political all at all in fact I'm ashamed of this I haven't voted in the past twenty years and when I did vote for years ago I couldn't tell -- if I voted for the Democrat in the Republican.
I jumped into this topic just by chance really.
And -- what I can we find -- I mean you're not surprised because you've been in the game I came away I cannot believe.
How bad illegal immigration is and how does that it's affecting America and the fact that you don't hear this on television every day -- I I couldn't believe what I found more.
And at the most shocking thing.
That you discovered and and interviewing people at the site of of the large illegal crossings from all the way to the workforce.
-- there are more than people who want to come here to cut your lawn crossing the border here people coming -- want to cut your throat.
And I'm a guy who was at 9/11 watching it like death.
I saw people jumping.
Eighty stories what makes somebody do that.
He's a visa violators in a lot of times people don't remember that's a part of -- legal immigration I also found people across the country were free to speak about this topic.
Because they get classified as of racist.

Rising up it makes fundamentally no sense and knowing that the president.
Giving out work permits to illegal immigrants who we've got 23 million people have book.
These people don't want welfare they want job apps.
America is getting crushed with illegal immigration -- and get it gets tucked under the rug.
-- it's no big deal is the number one problem facing our country today and in the years to come -- -- you realize it or not.
I think when you talked people really aren't political -- not alignment one party or not they might vote Republican one -- Democrat the next.
They can't figure out why it is the United States of America and all of her technology and all of -- well -- brain power.
Can't enforce the border and my answer to them as -- because there's been an unholy alliance between the left and the right for many years not to enforce the border or to.
Look the other way off.
Sometimes -- -- everybody's guilty here okay this is not a.
Blue or -- problem this is an American problem.
Okay we've got people -- our borders we've got people taking jobs and undercutting Americans and we just don't seem to care.
And I'll tell you why there are people -- -- of millions of people watching you tonight saying thank goodness somebody is finally telling the real story.
They don't -- they come to America dot com and order the dvd -- -- and then three.
Because I want them to take the other -- send -- -- to a swing states.
What wanted to take somebody who doesn't think that illegal immigration is the problem this I will not stop this fight war in -- everybody knows about the film.
I'm not so much I appreciate it shut out by the mainstream me.
