Claudio Rojas is suddenly detained by ICE officials outside his own home, and immediately imprisoned at the Broward Transitional Center, a Florida facility employed as a holding space for impending deportations of immigrants who have come into the country illegally. Claudio’s family, terrified and at a loss of what to do, is pointed in the direction of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA), an organization made up of activist DREAMERS. As they work on stopping Claudio’s deportation, NIYA uncovers the truth about the complex workings of the for-profit institutions that detain hundreds of immigrants without trial.

A look into the horrid reality of an Obama-era immigration detention system, The Infiltrators is a based-on-true-events hybrid documentary-fiction film, providing important and powerful commentary on the awful conditions immigrants face while unfairly detained and holding no power over their future.
