TOMORROW’S AMERICA is planned as a two-hour television special on federal immigration policy - past and present - and its likely demographic, economic, environmental, cultural and social impacts on local communities in the upcoming decades.The program is currently in production at locations across the country, and in Washington, D.C.
In San Jose CA, Albuquerque NM, Prince William County VA, and at three locations in Michigan, the Tomorrow's America production team have already examined how local communities are handling significant population growth, including large numbers of new immigrants, and how they are preparing for continued growth in the decades ahead - as the nation moves toward a population approaching a half-billion people by mid-century.
The program will examine essential aspects of our lives - educational, medical care, employment, criminal justice, and environmental issues. Writer/producer George A. Colburn has interviewed outstanding scholars at some of the nation's top educational institutions and influential policy-makers in Washington, D.C. deeply involved in the U.S. immigration debate.
TOMORROW’S AMERICA is designed to help citizens better understand the history of immigration in the U.S., the mythology that surrounds that history and the roots of current immigration policy in the immigration law of 1965 that led to the new "great wave" of legal immigration in the 1990s. The focus of the program is population growth and immigration, Colburn said, not illegal immigration that was encouraged by American business interests abetted by the federal government's unwillingness to police our southern border. "We will not ignore the illegal issue, however, because it is greatly impacting all aspects of life at the local level and in almost every state in the union," Colburn added.
Following completion of the television special, an education series of classroom-length programs with embedded web resources will be produced along with a companion website for educators and their students.
A series of unabridged interviews from the series is available on DVD.
