On the first episode of the new season, we commemorate the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks with a special episode seeing how the attacks affected New York's ethnic communities.
First, we investigate the influence of 9/11 on immigration reform. Then we see how Brooklyn’s Pakistani community is still dealing with the consequences of massive deportations and law enforcement scrutiny. After that, we highlight how Chinatown has attempted to rebound from the attacks. Finally, we hear how one organization is trying to get recognition for many of the undocumented who died at Ground Zero.
