Trafficked in America
FRONTLINE and the Investigative Reporting Program at U.C. Berkeley tell the story of Guatemalan teens forced to work against their will in the Midwest. The investigation uncovers a criminal network that exploited undocumented minors, companies that profited from forced labor and the U.S. government’s role.
- FRONTLINE PBS
FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. We tell the stories others can’t or won’t — from the rise of the NSA’s domestic surveillance dragnet, to the hidden history of the NFL and concussions, to the secret reality of rape on the job for immigrant women. Our investigations have helped breathe new life into terrorism cold cases, freed innocent people from jail, prompted U.N. resolutions, and spurred both policy and social change. We’ve been American television’s top long-form news and current affairs series since 1983, and we’ve won every major journalism and broadcasting award, including 93 Emmy Awards and 24 Peabody Awards. You can watch more than 200 of our documentaries online, for free, any time — and you can find our original digital reporting, interactives and analysis everywhere you are. We answer to no one but you.
