Movie:   WILL I HAVE TO LEAVE MY FAMILY?  SEEING DACA THROUGH A CHILD'S EYES

1 hour film viewing, followed by 1 hour of discussion

The PBS documentary East of Salinas is a story about immigration, childhood, and circumstance. With little support at home, Salinas, California third grader José often turns to his teacher, Mr. Ramos, once a migrant farm kid himself. Oscar helps José imagine a future beyond the lettuce fields where his parents work. But José was born in Mexico — and he's on the cusp of understanding the implications of that. As we watch this play out, we begin to understand the cruelty of circumstance — for José and many millions of migrant kids like him.

Following the screening, we will address the following questions:

  • identify and discuss the adverse life events that Jose has experienced -- and the risks he faces by being undocumented
  • discuss the stark socio-economic disparity between two adjacent communities: Salinas/Seaside and Monterey/Carmel
  • discuss impact of sociocultural environment on Jose and family (dangerous neighborhood, food insecurity, etc)
  • discuss ethical dilemma of his teacher, Mr. Ramos, in his efforts to assist Jose and family
  • explore opportunities for involvement for social workers who work with undocumented children, adults and families
