From the San Jose Mercury News "For decades the nation has endlessly debated how to solve the problem
of illegal immigration. One side calls for aggressive enforcement of  existing laws. The other side  calls for "comprehensive immigration reform." But while the debate rages, millions of American       children are left with the real possibility that their undocumented parents will be detected and     deported.
For the past year, a Mercury News reporter and photojournalist followed a San Mateo family on their emotional journey through the  U.S. immigration system. Both parents came here as illegal immigrants, but all six of their children are American citizens."
I like this series because it is a complete package. There is a mini doc and a narrative piece. I    also like how it weaves in opposing voices with audio sidebars. It also makes great use of graphics. This is a strong multimedia package.
