This startling documentary examines the plight of immigrants that resulted when Congress quietly passed a strict deportation law in 1996. Using powerful stories about immigrants trapped in federal detention center, the hour-long program highlights the senselessness of mandatory deportation, especially for legal residents who committed minor offenses long before the law was passed. This documentary uses strong storytelling to illustrate the flaws of immigration policy.

The Silver Baton was accepted by producer David Belle.
