This fun, positive series highlights the different experiences people have when they come to live in the United States. It reveals some of the stereotypes people have about the U.S., and how these were challenged for the people featured when they arrived. Immigrants also lightheartedly discuss some of the things they loved when they arrived (like eating cereal), and the things they've had to adjust to (including American interpretations of their ethnic foods).

Given the long-standing controversies surrounding immigration in the United States, We the People offers a refreshingly upbeat way of thinking about the immigrant experience. But the diverse group of participants featured here also challenges common misconceptions about who immigrants are, how they look, and what their attitudes are about coming to the United States. Most importantly, the series allows viewers to hear what it's like to immigrate from another country through each person's unique, and very human, lens.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
