Immigrant Detained on Purpose to Learn Stories

"Claudia Muñoz Castellano knew the risk she was taking as an undocumented immigrant when she tried to cross the U.S.-Canadian border last month at a checkpoint on the Ambassador Bridge.  That's because being caught was part of her plan.  Muñoz Castellano, 28, who lives near Houston had agreed to have herself detained by federal authorities so she could infiltrate an immigration detention facility in Michigan to learn the stories of the men and women housed there." – Serena Maria Daniels, Detroit News, May 28, 2013.
