Vote in Video Contest About Immigration

Just in case you're tired of the mainstream media's take on the immigration debate, the Movement Vision Lab is hosting a video contest on 'Community Values and Immigration.' The most compelling take on the relationship between immigration and community wins $1,000. The entries have already been winnowed down to five great finalists, but your vote can still help determine the winner.

The videos explore a variety of themes. One drives home the point that we are all immigrants. Others show horrifying footage of police raids on immigrant communities. Another takes us on the maze-like path to American citizenship.

Check them out and cast your vote.
