The United States has the biggest immigrant prison system in the world, yet most Americans are unaware of the conditions found in immigrant prisons, and the mistreatment many detained immigrants endure. Brave New Films has created this series —Immigrant Prisons—to change that.
With the current surge of anti-immigrant rhetoric, stock in the immigrant prison industry is skyrocketing and more ICE agents are being hired to patrol communities and lock up immigrants. This means more people are being detained every day and forced to live for days, weeks, and even months at a time in unsustainable conditions, all while giant corporations turn a profit.
Watch our videos Immigrant Prisons, Immigrants for Sale, and No More Detention: Free Pastor Noe to learn more about the immigrant prison industry and how it profits off the detention and suffering of people. Trauma at the Border and Families Torn Apart spotlight the injustices and terror of the U.S. family separation policy.
