Until then, Immigrants List, a bipartisan political action committee, will continue to raise awareness of the 12 million people living illegally in the United States, a mission it will continue this Wednesday by screening the Academy Award-nominated film The Visitor at 7 p.m. at the Colony Theatre. Set during the emotional aftermath of September 11, 2001, The Visitor follows an American college professor who discovers a young immigrant couple squatting in an apartment he owns. The fictional film raises many questions about the legal status of immigrants without tritely resolving any of them, so naturally there will be a panel discussion afterward led by Miami immigration attorney Ira Kurzban. The event is a fundraiser for Immigrants List, so theres a suggested donation of $50.
