This is a segment from the documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money. It discusses the situation of the immigrant nonresident workers in the United States Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and how they have been exploited and abused over their time in the islands. It goes into how the government of the CNMI worked with the likes of Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay to prolong the abusive system and prevent any federal reforms from taking place. Many of these immigrant workers are still in the CNMI today, and many of the political figures in this video still hold some form of public status.
