The first episode of season two tackles the issue of illegal immigration by placing a staunch anti-illegal immigration advocate into the home of a family of illegals. To make the man joining the family more interesting, he is a member of the volunteer group (Minutemen) who patrol the boarder and report illegal crossings to the authorities. Furthermore he himself is a legal immigrant, coming from Cuba in 1957 when Castro took over that country.
As was the case last year the story tells itself, and the ending may surprise you. I simply cannot think of a better program on television today. 30 Days puts you in the middle of the most charged situations in America today, moreover it puts a real face on the issue in a way that normal network television shuns.
