"LITTLE IMMIGRANTS provides evidence of the hardening of borders as political capital in the ascension of a right-wing cultural hegemony in sync with the economic needs of an American neoliberal economy. It focuses on minors (under 18 years of age) left behind in Mexico and whose parents moved and “settled” in the United States without papers and laboring in low-wage jobs. LITTLE IMMIGRANTS offers a poignant portrayal of how the US-Mexico border affects Mexican families."

"This compelling story offers a unique view of the immigration politics and how it affects children's lives."

"Sonia Fritz's films consistently show passion and concern for her subjects, and the results can be both educational and emotional. She focuses on women and men artists, musicians, or activists who had their day in the sun but who have since been neglected. Given her own history of having migrated from Mexico to Puerto Rico, she identifies with many of the migrant women she films and with the children who also need to migrate to be with family and begin a new life. The films make it possible for these individuals to be studied, understood, and remembered. Her longtime interests in children, women, and immigration are especially timely today."
- Eva Santos-Phillips, Cineaste
"Recommended… An excellent look at a timely topic. This film would be an excellent presentation in college classes, especially sociology. Teachers of advanced high school classes may also want to consider for discussions on multicultural or controversial issues. Public libraries may want to purchase for their DVD collection, as this film would appeal to many."
