Despite deporting record numbers during his administration. This seems to me to be very similar to the PR move he made earlier last year when he said they would change deportation terms and update how they were handling undocumented immigrants. Needless to say it was all talk and very little change if any. This new creating of the advocate to the undocumented seems to be a very similar move.

Over the weekend I had a chance to snag “A Better Life” at Redbox and watch it. I usually write-up reviews for documentaries but with this movie focusing on undocumented immigrants in California I thought I would review it. The movie chronicles the life of a father and son living outside of Los Angeles. The father is an undocumented immigrants working to create a better life for his son who was born in the United States. The movie shows the struggles the teenage son faces with the culture of gangs and in having a single parent home. No wanting to spoil anything for you I will tell you I found the movie to be overall very entertaining and a good watch. In regards to immigration I found it to be reasonably accurate and was glad it didn’t paint to many stereotypes. My only knock on the movie would be that in the movie description it uses the I-Word (illegal) when referring to the father.
