For My Immigrants Music Video

Newest Americans announces the release of the song and music video For My Immigrants, a rousing anthem for Dreamers who believe they “can move any mountain/any wall can be broken.” Our heritage as a nation of immigrants is under attack. Alexis Torres Machado and a team of Dreamers and their advocates are fighting back.

Watch the music video here: http://newestamericans.com/for-my-immigrants/

Alexis Torres Machado was five when his parents brought him to the U.S. from Uruguay. He’s one of the hundreds of thousands of young people who discovered they were undocumented at some point during childhood. As a junior at Rutgers University-Newark, Alexis wrote For My Immigrants on the heels of Donald Trump’s election. What he saw in the news didn’t reflect the people he knew or the experience he had lived, so he channeled his anger into verse.

“I was tired of all the false claims about immigrants,” he says. “I wanted my people to know ‘You’re not alone. Your voice is heard.’”

Newest Americans brought in our friends Guillermo Brown (Pegasus Warning and the drummer for The Late Late Show with James Corden) and Wynne Bennett (composer and keyboardist for Twin Shadow) to create an original score. Then we enlisted Adam Abada to direct the music video, and rallied some more friends and family—all immigrants, many DACA activists—to be in the video.

Alexis, and all of the collaborators on the song and video, hope that For My Immigrants will empower Dreamers, while encouraging the rest of us to stand with them.
