Nick News Special "Harvest of Hope" #65
Millions have crossed the Mexico-U.S. border in search of the American dream, a dream that may not be as much about freedom and democracy as about a job. But the work that awaits these new arrivals is work many Americans don't want to do -- farm work. It's grueling, low paid and seasonal, so to keep working you have to migrate. Most migrant workers are young men, but young men grow up and start families. Then the whole family migrates and the whole family works. There are rules, but kids do work in the fields, miss a lot of school and often have trouble putting down roots. And yet many say they love seeing the country and making new friends-and they say they understand their parents are doing this so they won't have to. Nick News introduces four kids from two migrant families and joins them in spring as school lets out and the work begins to move north.
