The Strange Death Of José De Jesús, Part 1

My thoughts: This podcast underscores the tragedy of our immigration system, while showcasing the passion and skill behind powerful investigative journalism.

Their description: "A man dies in a U.S. immigration detention center, under unusual circumstances. He is found unresponsive in his cell, with a sock stuffed down his throat. His death is ruled a suicide, but little information is put out about what happened, and the family wants answers. In this first part of a special two-part series, Latino USA investigates why José de Jesús died in the custody of the U.S. government, and what his death tells us about conditions —especially mental health services— inside the immigration detention system."
