Beginning with the reflection that "Once, there was no such thing as an illegal immigrant. If you could get here, you could stay," historians Donna Gabaccia and Janet Nolan provide a historical context for America's long-conflicted relationship with immigrant labor. The film focuses on the stories of three groups: the Irish, who fled starvation at home in the mid-19th century and penetrated the urban workforce and helped build America's railroads; the Norwegians, who came to farm the Midwest when land ran out in their country; and the Mexicans, millions of whom were recruited by American industry in the 1920's as labor for American mills and factories, and then expelled when no longer needed.
