ICE Attempted to Censor Embedded Journalists Who Filmed Wrongdoing

HeadlineJul 24, 2020

Two filmmakers who embedded with ICE for over two years say the agency threatened to censor parts of their documentary series and aggressively fought to delay its release until after the 2020 election. The filmmakers captured ICE agents lying to immigrants to be let into their homes, officers illegally picking the lock of an apartment building during a raid, and agents mocking immigrants after they were apprehended. The docuseries, “Immigration Nation,” is set to be released on Netflix next month.
