Making Contact

A hand­ful of com­pa­nies are mak­ing mil­lions off of ankle mon­i­tors strapped to undoc­u­ment­ed immi­grants in ICE cus­tody. The mak­ers pitch the mon­i­tors as an alter­na­tive to being jailed, but are they sim­ply anoth­er form of bondage? Reporter Ryan Katz looks at what life is life while wear­ing one of these mon­i­tors. He untan­gles the com­pli­cat­ed web of ICE, immi­gra­tion bail agent com­pa­nies, and the attor­neys fight­ing them.
