A new Netflix documentary has been released showing the life of immigrants as they struggle between the United States immigration system and threats of deportation. The documentary has come amidst reports that Trump called for using snakes, spiked fences and shoot border crossers in legs in a bid to stop migrants from entering the US, a claim which he later denied.
Living Undocumented is currently airing on the streaming platform Netflix and follows the journey of eight Latin American, Israel, Laos and Africa who are trying to live a normal life in the United States in spite of family member's immigration status. The six-episode series reveals how families are trying to manage to go day by day in wake of deportation threats amidst a frequent change in policies and laws. The series crew in a 'fly on the wall' approach follows migrant families as they eagerly await immigration rulings and celebrate birthdays, bar mitzvahs and family cookout in Florida, Texas and South Carolina. Co-directors Anna Chai and Aaron Saidman reportedly said that they wanted to create a series that will allow the migrants to speak for themselves.
As per reports, Trump recently advocated using deadly reptiles and spiked fences and allowing soldiers to shoot illegal border crossers in legs after being told not to use lethal force. Trump has been coming hard on both illegal and legal immigration as one of the key beliefs in his nationalist "America First" approach. Undocumented crossings of the Mexican border have dropped sharply in recent years. Trump, however, denied this claim:
Now the press is trying to sell the fact that I wanted a Moat stuffed with alligators and snakes, with an electrified fence and sharp spikes on top, at our Southern Border. I may be tough on Border Security, but not that tough. The press has gone Crazy. Fake News!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
