Episode Summary

Episode 6
Israel leaves his dye press job to work as a security guard in a department store, and Barine takes on an additional job selling Mary Kay cosmetics. Naima enjoys her new job at a Jewish day care center, and Hatem devotes more time to his civic work. Anjan faces an awkward adjustment to life in the U.S. After a few months, his wife Harshini arrives to live with him, but she is isolated and bored since his visa requirements forbid her from working. Their new apartment and other luxuries come at the cost of long hours at work for Anjan. Despite holding coveted greencards, the Flores family moves to California for agricultural work in order to be closer to Ventura's sister. This leaves their oldest daughter unable to attend high school, though she still takes night school classes after full days in the fields. The episode ends on a positive note, as Ricardo makes his major league debut with his favorite team, the Cleveland Indians.moreless
