not trying to change your opinion about the movie but if all you got out of it was putting aliens in a ghetto then you were never going to get the movie.

I thought it was a very unique way of showing how we marginalize certain groups of people in society. How the guy went from being one of the majority talking about the aliens, marginalizing them to being one of the marginalized.
