More on immigrant detainees' plight

Posted: Oct. 23, 2012 | Tags: immigration

Last fall, we broadcast "Lost in Detention," a co-production of PBS FRONTLINE and the Investigative Reporting Workshop, on the conditions in immigrant detention centers around the country, including reports of sexual abuse.

Now correspondent Maria Hinojosa and producer Catherine Rentz have created a radio story using some of the unused footage from that program and expanding on what we heard from whistleblowers and detainees. This follow-up to "Lost in Detention" can be heard on the Latino USA website,, through Oct. 25, and is also available as a podcast through iTunes. 

You can view the full program that aired on Oct. 18, 2011, here
