The Americans with Charlie LeDuff: NAFTA

Posted: Updated:
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.

    LeDuff: There are conflicting accounts about what happened between the cop and the teen.   There is no videotape and so we may never know what really happened. But after getting an unprovoked beating with a traffic cone in Ferguson myself, I wondered what it must be like to be on the other side of the shield.

    The streets in Ferguson are calming now. The Attorney General of the United States has arrived. The media will soon get distracted with the next catastrophe, and Ferguson will go on. There will be a trial probably. Will it be enough?
