Lesson Plan Clip 1 | The Infiltrators
Opens with Marco recalling how “[they] called Broward a ‘model’ detention center.” Introduces Mohammad, who explains why Broward was an ideal site for targeted immigration activism.
- They called Broward a model detention center.
Minimum security, TVs in every room.
None of the men in here committed crimes,
they weren't being legally punished.
And so they don't get a right
to a trial before getting locked up.
They don't even get a sentence.
We just get warehoused.
- When we went to Florida,
pretty much the only thing that we knew
was that we were going to find a way
to get Marco into the Broward Detention Center.
We're normally used to detention centers
in the middle of nowhere.
This one is in the middle of a city.
And all the people there are really low priority,
like pulled over for driving without a license
or they were just a passenger in the car,
like they don't have ID.
We had heard lots of stories and we knew
there was hundreds of men
that should not be in here.
- Immigration action from congress
to fix our broken immigration system.
What we've tried to do is focus
our immigration enforcement resources
on criminals who endanger our communities
rather than students who are earning their education.
- [Mohammed] Obama was saying, "We're not jailing people
unless they are criminals."
- [Barrack] Deportation of criminals is up.
- There was sort of this immediate thought of
Broward is the detention center
to take down and that's what we set out to do.
