Singer Selena Gomez debuts Netflix special, “Living Undocumented”

FYI Selena: There is already a pathway to naturalization.

From Yahoo: Selena Gomez shared a powerful trailer on Tuesday for the new documentary series she is executive producing for Netflix that follows eight families who are at risk of being deported.

The series, called Living Undocumented, is set to premiere on the streaming platform on October 2 and will offer a poignant look at the lives of undocumented immigrants illegal aliens living in America during a time of increasing racial tension.

Gomez, 27, and co-executive producers Aaron Saidman and Eli Holzman want to highlight the real-life fears and hardships these families experience every day in the hopes it will humanize them for viewers.

“I am so humbled to be a part of Netflix’s documentary series Living Undocumented,” Gomez, 27, wrote in a post on her Instagram on Tuesday.

“The immigration issue is more complex than one administration, one law or the story you hear about on the news,” she continued. “These are real people in your community, your neighbors, your friends—they are all part of the country we call home. I can’t wait for you guys to see this and hope it impacts you like it impacted me.”

Saidman and Holzman previously produced the groundbreaking docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, which took a deep dive into the Church of Scientology and their alleged abuses.

“Living Undocumented is designed to illuminate one of the most important issues of our time,” Saidman said in a comment provided by Netflix.

“But rather than discussing this issue with only statistics and policy debates, we wanted viewers to hear directly from the immigrants themselves, in their own words, with all the power and emotion that these stories reflect,” Saidman added.

Gomez — who also produced the series 13 Reasons Why with Netflix — added that she believes the word “immigrant” has been viewed negatively over the past few years.

“I chose to produce this series, Living Undocumented, because over the past few years, the word immigrant has seemingly become a negative word,” she said. “My hope is that the series can shed light on what it’s like to live in this country as an undocumented immigrant firsthand, from the courageous people who have chosen to share their stories.”

I wonder if Netflix would underwrite another docuseries called “Living Undocumented: The Untold Stories of Twenty Million Americans Dispossessed by the Hispanic Invasion.

To watch TV or movies in America is to see America through the eyes of its enemy.

They still fail to understand that breaking the law, for any reason, is still wrong. Maybe the culture will turn a blind eye to illegals but they still have the moral burden weighting them down.

There are people advocating for the release of murderers on death row too.

Anyone anywhere who enters any country illegally risks being deported. That should be self-evident. But the subtext of the entire discussion is that Bad Orange Man suddenly introduced harsh new immigration rules becuse he’s racis’. So they experience fears and hardships, primarily because they are here illegally. The obvious solution for them is to go back where they came from and then they won’t be illegal anymore. And if they still experience fears and hardships, welcome to the world. We all do. Life is life
