Looking for engaging shows to binge watch during the COVID-19 lockdown?  There is something coming soon for blog readers.

Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming docuseries, “Immigration Nation,” which takes viewers inside the migrant crisis at our southern border, Proma Khosla writes for Mashable.

Netflix states that "[t]his documentary series offers a unique and nuanced view of the ongoing struggles in America's broken immigration system."

The six-part series, which “follows activists, lawmakers, attorneys, immigrants, and even ICE agents” over the course of three years.

Immigration Nation premieres August 3 on Netflix.

UPDATE (July 26):  There have been numerous reports (here and here) that, although Immigration & Customs Enforcement officials cooperated initially with the filmmakers, the Trump administration reacted negatively to the documentary that developed and became combative as its release neared.
