About the Project

Advances in science and technology in America depend heavily on high-skilled legal immigrants from across the globe. But our current immigration system takes an inhumane, unfair, and unwise approach toward these immigrants and their families. ALIEN exposes the human toll of America’s dependence on high-skilled legal immigrants and how the Indian immigrant community bears the heaviest burden.

ALIEN intimately follows five Indian high-skilled immigrants and their families as they build lives and families in this country in an uphill battle toward their American Dream.
