Michigan to Mexico -Immigration. Jobs. The latest report from Charlie LeDuff  and the Americans delves into the corrosive legacy of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

NAFTA is 20 years old. Back then it promised us it would create jobs for all of us and stop the wave of illegal immigration from Mexico. So what happened to those jobs and why are the immigrants still coming?

Play the video as Charlie heads to Reynosa, Mexico, where there are dozens of new factories built by American companies. Charlie also heads to Flint, Michigan, the birthplace of General Motors and now one the epicenter of job loss, indicative of the more than 1 million American jobs that have been lost since NAFTA was enacted.

After the feature video, play the five bonus Daily Minute videos to meet the real people who are part of this story.
