Plot Synopsis

From the filmmaking team of Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau, IMMIGRATION NATION is a six-episode documentary series that chronicles the processes, pitfalls and pain of immigration in America. Shot over the course of three years, Schwarz and Clusiau capture the daily workings of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, activists, lawmakers, attorneys and a wide swath of undocumented immigrants, from desperate recent arrivals to longtime residents to deported U.S. military combat veterans. With migrant workers continuing to across the U.S. border, the pressure on ICE to enforce the administration's zero-tolerance policies puts immigrants in the crosshairs. But how do we fix a system that seems beyond repair? How do we apply common sense to something that's evolved from one of humanitarian concern to an us-versus-them political flashpoint? Has the story of America -- the one that inspired our own immigrant relatives to risk death for a better life -- been rewritten so broadly that the "land of the free" is a luxury afforded now only to a few? As ineffective deterrence and militarized tactics continue, this series reveals a system that demands unflinching attention and action. Netflix released all six episodes of IMMIGRATION NATION on Monday, August 3, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
