Must WATCH: Immigrant abuse exposed in new documentary

October 31, 2011

A very powerful documentary, LOST IN DETENTION, recently aired on PBS’s Frontline and revealted the devastating consequences of the mass incarceration of immigrants and the harsh toll it takes on families, women and children. You can watch it for free by clicking here.
The documentary was the work of award-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa, of NPR’s Latino USA. The organization I work with, Presente.org, spoke with Hinojosa about her piece. Check it out.

The astonishing and unprecedented footage in Lost in Detention has the power to change how people understand the immigration crisis and motivate them to act. The film starts with the highly criticized Secure Communities (S-Comm) program and goes on to give a look at the overall system of detention and incarceration – and on the physical and sexual abuse that has become commonplace.
