Latino immigration continues to transform the United States in many ways, and it isn't just in the Southwest or California that these changes are occurring. Siler City, North Carolina and Minneapolis, Minnesota are just two of the seemingly unlikely places where one can glimpse this transformation to the American landscape. This offering from the American RadioWorks organization takes a heartfelt and investigative look into the ways in which Latino immigration is remaking the country. The documentary is divided into two sections: "Precarious Prosperity" and "Nuevo South". In the first, visitors will hear about the broader transformations wrought by Latino immigration across the country, and in the second, visitors can listen to the ways in which this process is playing out in the small town of Siler City. On the site visitors can also read about profiles of immigrants attempting to become legal residents of the US and the ways in which Latinos breathe new life into long neglected urban communities. Finally, visitors can also download the entire program and read the transcript here as well.
