Film and Discussion: The Guestworker (2006; 45 min) In Spanish with English subtitles

December 15, 2017
From: 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

This engaging documentary chronicles the life of Candelario, a seasonal farm worker who has been going between Mexico and the United States for 40 years harvesting crops and trying to provide for his family. Without benefits, without retirement, he battles against the elements, his own age, and the backbreaking work.  Ciro Parascandola and Lauren Berstein from the USCIS will facilitate the post-film discussion and explain how the federal government’s H2-A Visa and guest worker program operates.
