Detained and Exposed (working title) 1x30
FRONTLINE and The Marshall Project team up to investigate the spread of COVID-19 through ICE detention facilities in New Jersey. With exclusive access to guards and detainees currently inside, the film looks at these federal holding facilities as the numbers of infected grow and ICE continues to detain and deport this vulnerable population. On the outside, we follow families of the detained who have been made homeless or destitute, as they fight to get their sick loved ones out. FRONTLINE filmmaker-in-residence Ben C. Solomon and Marshall Project director and reporter Emily Kassie investigate allegations of neglect in responding to the virus’s spread, and the toll it is taking.
