Homeland: Immigration In America
Series Description: "Homeland" explores the contemporary story of immigration in America. While immigration is a national issue this election year, it plays out daily in the lives of people in communities across the country. It's a story of new immigrants who find themselves walking a fine line between access to and expulsion from the American dream. It's also a story of American citizens who wonder if legal and illegal immigrants threaten their way of life. It's a story of intertwined and complex issues that may have a significant effect on the choices people make when they go to the polls in November.

The third part of the HOMELAND series takes viewers to the heart of America's humanitarian position as a refuge for those fleeing violence, disaster, war and persecution around the world.
