A useful parable to enable the layman's understanding of, as human rights attorney Becca Heller eloquently explains, "the brilliance of any bureaucratic system whose net result is fear and trauma."

It puts names and faces to people that the White House has tried to turn into an anonymous brown blur.

Sep 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Immigration Nation transports viewers inside detention centers and ICE field offices across the country, and even into Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. But it's the stories of the victims, torn from their children and parents, that prove the most haunting.

Aug 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Immigration Nation does pull back the scope to show the institutional forces at play here: namely, the farce of our current system of legal immigration, but also the ways capitalism incentivizes the dehumanization of undocumented immigrants.

A difficult, but necessary, viewing experience...

Aug 10, 2020 | Full Review…

As taxing to watch as it is, one can appreciate the quality and purposeful vision of the craftsmanship. While there are static interviews, a large portion of the footage was capture as tense situations unfolded.

Audience Reviews for Immigration Nation: Miniseries

  • Sep 11, 2020
    Inaccurate, full of propaganda and mistruths.
  • Sep 09, 2020
    Laws are made to treat everyone equally but now we see how it treats people when the authority in charge is violent and blind.
  • Aug 17, 2020
    This inside look into ICE and our immigration system will break your heart. A must-see.
  • Aug 17, 2020
    The realities of the American Dream. It feels surreal to watch in 2020 this was the country that represented freedom, now it has become the antithesis of that.
  • Aug 16, 2020
    It's fine, I don't have anything to say.
  • Aug 15, 2020
    A cold and cruel way to show what's going on in "the land of freedom ". It's terrifying the way how these guys from ICE deal with people, literally like cattle. Shame !!! So sad.
  • Aug 10, 2020
    Okay, do some of these reviewers understand that if you support the message of the series, you shouldn't give low ratings. Most of us will agree that what is going on with ICE is disgusting and tragic. ICE deserves NO stars but this show was amazing and deserves five stars. Very hard to watch and just devastating. But it gave an intimate look into what actually happens behind closed doors during the process of deportation. A must see.
  • Aug 10, 2020
    I think hearing and reading about immigration issues is not enough. You need to see it. No matter which side of the fence you are on in the way this administration has handled the matter
  • Aug 10, 2020
    This is a great and touching series. Reason why I Cancelled my D+ membership and kept Netflix.
  • Aug 09, 2020
    Great look into the current operations of ICE. This is what your tax dollars are being used to fund - in the name of the American People. We do not always wear the white hat.
