On the heels of the 2nd anniversary of DACA, our partners at Welcome.us invited actor Guillermo Diaz (Huck on "Scandal") to direct this short film, "Valley of the Undocumented," featuring real families and set to a spoken word poem delivered by Lemon Andersen (Russell Simmons' Def Poetry Jam on Broadway).

Even though these undocumented youth are covered under DACA, they are worried about their mothers being deported. Inspired by Andersen's spot for Nike featuring LeBron James in honor of Immigrant Heritage Month.

Other directorial debuts for Welcome.us' Immigrant Heritage Month initiative include Rocsi Diaz and Naya Rivera.
