Story 7: Ain't the AFL for Nothin'

Fall, 2003: Esther, Senator Kennedy's Immigration Counsel, has 8 weeks
to accomplish a small miracle—convince business and labor to agree
on a comprehensive immigration deal, and find a Republican to co-sponsor
the bill. 

Meanwhile, the Immigrant Worker Freedom Ride buses travel cross-country
to lobby Congress, creating a very public impression that unions support Kennedy.

But forces inside the AFL-CIO are working to derail Esther’s bill. 
Ultimately, years of work and the futures of millions of families ride on 
one last conversation.
