Documentary LOST IN DETENTION
In the last two years, the Obama administration set new records for detaining and deporting immigrants who were inside the country illegally, 800,000. The government plans to best those numbers in 2012. In partnership with American University’s Investigative Reporting Workshop, FRONTLINE correspondent Maria Hinojosa takes a penetrating look at Obama’s vastly expanded immigration net, explores the controversial Secure Communities enforcement program and goes inside the hidden world of immigration detention in Lost in Detention, airing Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011, at 9 P.M. ET on PBS (check local listings).
