Description: Harvest of Empire is based on the ground-breaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now! co-host Juan González. Featuring real life stories and rare archival footage, Harvest of Empire is a gripping documentary that reveals the political and social roots that have driven millions to migrate from Latin America to the United States.
