NBC News reports on “Make America Great Again”

This week, NBC News reported on a new film called Make America Great Again.

Starring Angel “Chi Chi” Salazar (Scarface, 1983) it tells the story of Rogelio Yola, who arrives in New York City in search of the American dream.

But instead he finds a nightmare, when he is accused of being a “Dominican terrorist” and chased by ICE agents all over Washington Heights.

According to writer/director Nelson Denis, “Donald Trump dehumanizes people, which makes it easier to attack them. I want to put a human face on the issue of immigration and ICE arrests…and show the physical and emotional violence that people are suffering.”

The issue of ICE arrests and deportation is very personal to Denis. His own father was a supporter of Fidel Castro. Two weeks after the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, the FBI knocked on his door at 3 a.m. They grabbed his father and deported him to Cuba.

Denis was eight years old at the time. He never saw his father again.
