Lives for Sale: A Documentary on Immigration & Human Trafficking DVD


First aired on Public Television and the Hallmark Channel, this harrowing film goes beyond the rhetoric to show why immigrants are willing to risk everything, even virtual slavery, for the American Dream.

While politicians, activists and the media wrestle with the thorny issue of immigration, Lives for Sale exposed the painful, rearely see human side of illegal immigration, especially the growing black market trade in human beings. The documentary also looks at the same practical alternatives to these tragic realities.

Tracing the stories of two young women who were trafficked, one in California, the other in Florida, the documentary asks why and how this could happen in the United States, and what can be done to stem the most lucrative criminal enterprise after drugs and gun sales. 58 mins, study guide.
