Fresh from 9500Liberty.com, the latest trailer of the new documentary based on the groundbreaking YouTube channel, 9500liberty.

Watch it:

Here’s the description of the film, from 9500Liberty.com:

In
July of 2007, Prince William County, Virginia became “ground zero” in
America’s explosive battle over immigration policy when elected
officials adopted a law requiring police officers to question anyone
they thought was “probably” undocumented.

9500 Liberty
reveals the startling vulnerability of a local government targeted by
national anti-immigration networks using the Internet to frighten and
intimidate lawmakers and citizens. Alarmed by a climate of fear and
racial division, residents form a resistance using YouTube videos and
virtual townhalls, setting up a real life showdown in the seat of
county government.

The devastating social and economic
impact of the “Immigration Resolution” is felt in the lives of real
people in homes and in local businesses. But the ferocious fight to
adopt and then reverse this policy unfolds inside government chambers,
on the streets, and on the Internet. 9500 Liberty provides a front row
seat to all three battlegrounds.
