Sandra Sanchez directs AFSC's Immigrants Voice Program in Des Moines. She says of this video:

"A courageous work and great editing from AJ & Global Force (Fuerza Mundial Global). To those who say or think 'if you want to come here, do it right,' I say: The current system allows only those who are privileged to 'do it right.' Americans ignore, for the most part, how difficult, costly, and complicated the current system is."

Sandra describes Fuerza Mundial Global as a peaceful grassroots organization based in Los Angeles, linked to other grassroots movements internationally through the arts.
