Description

In 2015, Southampton, NY tried to evict a group of immigrants from their home. A shadowy campaign of mostly white Hamptonites was behind the effort. They pressured the town with lawyers and political allies. The residents fought back, and won. But it didn’t end there. A second campaign to throw them out went all the way to the White House. Everytown: The Hamptons tells the story of the BelAire Cove Motel, a story as complex as immigration itself, one that defies traditional clichés of xenophobia or breaking-the-law. Instead, the story of the BelAire is a microcosm of immigration as it’s playing out in our country today.
