The plight of Immigrants in the US
Documentary film - Immigrants for Sale
The detention of migrants has become a multi-billion-dollar industry in which immigrants are sold to the highest bidder and traded like mere products. Private corporations run over 200 facilities that offer over 150,000-bed spaces and rake in a total profit of close to five billion dollars per year. These detention centers get paid for the number of people that are in the center per night. There is no incentive to speed up the legal processes and let the detainees leave the facility
