About the film: A rag-tag group of undocumented youth deliberately get detained by Border Patrol in order to infiltrate a shadowy, for-profit detention center. THE INFILTRATORS weaves together documentary footage of the real infiltrators with moving re-enactments to tell the inspirational true story of young DREAM-ers tapping into the power of crowd-sourced activism while illustrating the need for compassion in the evolving dynamics of immigration reform.
About our Community partner – New Sanctuary Network | Tulsa is an anti-deportation organization founded in 2016. We are migrant and asylum defenders shining a bright light on the darkness of ICE detention – at the US/ Mexico border and in Tulsa County where the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) contracts with ICE to deputize local law enforcement to serve as ICE agents and to warehouse detainees. Our work consists of advocacy, direct action and solidarity in gestures of radical welcome.
