Undocumented restaurant workers film and forum at South Philly Barbacoa

There's no getting around the fact that restaurants across the city (and country) are staffed by many, many undocumented workers. That's the case at South Philly Barbacoa, where the chef who creates some of the best tacos around cannot get a green card, even though she's married to her American citizen business partner. Come talk about the issues and watch a film about the topic at the couple's South Philly spot.
