SANTA MONICA, CA — (07-25-20) — The upcoming mini-series ‘Immigration Nation’ official trailer is here, the docu-series DHS and ICE officials tried to stop from being released until after the 2020 election is coming soon to Netflix.

According to The New York Times, President Trump’s DHS attempted to delay the release of the Netflix documentary Immigration Nation, until after the 2020 election.

DHS and ICE officials went as far s to “threaten legal action” against Christina Clusiau and Shaul Schwarz, directors of the docu-series, and ordered them to remove scenes that negatively portray their policies and tactics.

One such scene reportedly shows an ICE officer illegally picking a lock during an apartment raid, while another features a supervisor telling an agent to “start taking collateral’s” while making street arrests.

“Immigration Nation” brings a sharp, topical examination at the ongoing immigration crisis taking place on the United States’ southern border.

The six-part docu-series, directed by Christina Clusiau and Shaul Schwarz, will has been given an August 3 release date on Netflix.

Due to the controversy, Netflix released the following statement:

“The series will examine 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 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 an unrelenting flow of migrant workers continuing 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?

“Immigration Nation” aims to cover a critically important human rights issue, and the trailer below suggests the docuseries will take a candid look at both the nation’s border officers and the immigrants they detain. ICE’s operations and the nation’s detention centers on the southern border received significant media attention in 2018 due to a multitude of photos and reports that showed inhumane treatment of immigrant detainees. More recently, a U.S. district judge ordered that all minors in ICE custody with their parents must be released, but that order has yet to be carried out.”

Netflix is set to premier ‘Immigration Nation’ on August 3, 2020.
