Documentary About Illegal Immigration Inspired By 7-11 In Southampton

Remember the movie King of the Hamptons by Dennis Lynch? The East Hampton filmmaker is back with a controversial new film—They Come to America.

Lynch got the idea to make the film about illegal immigration after seeing Tom Wedell, the man who is often seen protesting in front of the 7-11 in Southampton and interviewing him. As the title reveals, this is not just a local story, but one that took Lynch across the country.

Here is the trailer below. It looks intense.
