ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

Inside the matrix of 200 detention centers,

almost 40,000 immigrants are locked up.

They don't get a court-appointed lawyer.

They don't even get a sentence.

They just get warehoused.

Inside there has been cases of abuse

and even mysterious death.

Well tonight, I have one question:

"Um, hi?"

how can I get in?

You're gonna be transported to a detention facility.

We're all young illegals.

Our mission: stop the deportations.

Our strategy: get into the detention center

and get people out.

There's a woman's side to this detention center.

I called my mom and my dad and I said

this is what I'm about to do.

They were scared for their daughter.

[whistles]

Call this number with your case.

They're waiting for your call.

We can pass out a lot more phone numbers now.

We knew there was hundreds of men that should not be in here.

You're coming with us.

We're putting you on a plane. - No! No!

I don't know what you're up to.

But from now on, things are gonna be very different.

Her husband was beating her.

And she finally went to the cops to turn him in, like,

she thought she was doing the right thing.

And then they detained her.

They're deporting Benny. His flight leaves tonight.

I have somebody that's being deported in a couple hours.

His life is in danger.

Let's get them to release him.

Why were you willing to be arrested

and deported to find out what was happening inside this jail?

He had already lost his family.

What else does he have to lose?

We're not leaving.

We're not leaving.
