ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

(knocking on door)

(speaking foreign language) Hi.

Hi.

I'm looking for Claudio Rojas.

Well, that's me.

Who are you?

I'm Marco.

I'm with the National Immigrant Youth Alliance.

(speaking foreign language) Your son contacted us.

We're going to get you out.

My son?

Yeah, Emiliano found us on the internet.

We stop deportations.

- [Officer] Now who's on the mess hall for turn over?

(pensive music)

(speaking foreign language) Let's go somwehere we can talk.

(speaking foreign language) I don't think you know what you've gotten yourself into, kid.

This isn't my first time.

I was arrested at a protest a few months ago.

A protest?

Our group organizes protests to stop deportations.

Oh yeah?

Give me a second.

(Claudio yells)

(speaking foreign language) Everything okay?

Yeah.

After the protest, how long were you detained?

One night.

The whole night?

Look.

The Brazilians.

They've been here over a year.

The Chinese have been here over two years.

Two years?

Then you have the Haitians, the Mexicans, the Salvadorans...

There's six hundred men in here.

The majority have been here years.

If we work together in here and coordinate with

my group on the outside, we can make noise.

We think we can get people out.

We think we can get you out.

I have a question, kid.

Do your parents know what you're doing in here?

(mellow music)
