9500 LIBERTY documents the first time in U.S. history that an Arizona-style immigration law was actually implemented, and the surprising grassroots opposition that led to its repeal. Racial tension and threats of violence erupt when Prince William County, Virginia adopts a law requiring the police to question people who appear to be undocumented immigrants. Supporters of the law ride a wave of hysteria to an election victory. But many reconsider when the local economy feels the impact of a sudden exodus of workers, consumers, and business owners. Despite fears of reprisal, a group of concerned citizens launches a "virtual resistance" using social media, setting up a final showdown with the law's ferocious advocates.

This was basically a propaganda piece for illegal immigration, and for Barack Obama.

A moving example of what a humble documentary can tell people about.
