Lin-Manuel Miranda’s powerful new video for Immigrants (We Get The Job Done) is based on a track from The Hamilton Mixtape.

Rolling Stone reports:

Inspired by a lyric in the Hamilton song Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down), the Immigrants video focuses on the refugees’ plight – from war-torn situations to ICE raids – as well as their indispensable contributions upon immigrating to America.

The video features rappers K’naan, Residente, Riz MC (a.k.a. The Night Of actor Riz Ahmed) and Snow Tha Product – a Somali Canadian, Puerto Rican, British Pakistani and Mexican-American, Mashable notes – delivering their respective verses.
