Each year, the U.S. government locks up roughly 440,000 immigrants in over 200 immigrant prisons. These prisons have grown into a highly privatized, lucrative and abusive industry that profits off misery. We're doing everything we can to expose the abuses of the deportation industrial complex. In our new film, we explore conditions inside these prisons, exposing substandard medical care, widespread physical and sexual abuse, virtual slave labor working conditions and more. These abuses happen behind closed doors with little to no oversight. This film, created in partnership with advocates for detainee rights, is shining a light on a particularly dark corner of the American justice system.
