The Infiltrators

The Infiltrators

A young Mexican man walks into a Border Patrol station in Florida. He seems disoriented and he admits that he recently crossed the border illegally. The stunned Border Patrol agent handcuffs the man and sends him to a detention center for immigrants facing deportation. However, once behind bars, we learn a few things about the young man. His name is Marco and he’s looking for someone…another detainee…and Marco has a plan…

The Infiltrators is a suspenseful telling of an incredible true story, a little-known chapter in American activism, and a rare insider experience of a for-profit immigrant detention center – an institution that is rapidly expanding across the American landscape.
