Overnight, in 2008, a court interpreter named Erik Camayd-Freixas made national news by reporting on grave miscarriages of justice after what was then the biggest and most famous immigration raid in modern history: Postville, Iowa.
Now a new documentary called America First: The Legacy of an Immigration Raid honors the larger picture of that story. It is a shocking tale. It is a moving film. Above all, America First it is a tribute to the power of documentaries to capture the moments that make the “other” into us. To show us that we are all human.
Camayd-Freixas is a hero to many interpreters! Congratulations to Univision. Don’t miss this film.
