VIDEO:  Lin Manuel Miranda Celebrates Fourth of July by Honoring the Immigrant Experience

vv

Power filled images and evocative messaging is what you get when the MacCarthur Genius Lin Manuel Miranda and filmmaker Robert Rodriguez get together. The talented duo created a recently launched video for Immigrants (We Get the Job Done) – a track from The Hamilton Mixtape album.

Check out the video highlighting immigrants hard at work rapping about being the often forgot and least praised members of American society. The creatives made sure to include the feared and ever-present immigration agents (ICE) in the video - another reality for the immigrant and undocumented experience.

Miranda and Rodriguez feature many well-known rappers in the video including, Residente and Snow Tha Product.

The Hamilton Mixtape is a compilation of songs featured in Miranda’s Broadway mega-hit Hamilton. The video was created to benefit We Get The Job Done Coalition, a group of immigrant advocacy organizations.
