Netflix movies and shows: Immigration Nation

Immigration Nation is definitely a docuseries you want to watch if you missed it when it came to Netflix in August. It’s an important series that shows footage of the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency’s (ICE) actions during the Trump presidency from 2017 to 2020. It’s heartbreaking and will make you want to take action for change.

In this docuseries, you see the cruelty and the inhumane treatment the US government has allowed on our soil. Despite some people thinking of it as hyperbole, these are concentration camps. Once you watch the documentary, you’ll see there is no other word for them.

And anyone wanting to invalidate the truth of what is shown in the series should know that ICE tried to stop the release of this series. They wanted the filmmakers, Christina Clusiau and Shaul Schwarz, to wait until after the 2020 presidential election. Why would a government agency not want us to see a film about its practices until after the date where we can vote on who the leader of the country will be?

According to the New York Times, the filmmakers were threatened multiple time with one official saying “the administration’s anger over the project came from ‘all the way to the top.’”

Some of the most controversial scenes show ICE agents lying to people to gain entrance to their homes and then mocking them after they took the people into custody. One officer is even shown picking the lock to try and get inside an apartment building.

Officers are also told in the film to pick up as many people as possible with no distinction of whether they’ve committed a crime or not (a line they often use to tamp down worries about the agency).

Immigration Nation is an important piece of media you do not want to miss, especially with the election coming up in a few months.
