Maximum Pressure & Separated Families | VICE on SHOWTIME

Iran has experienced one of the world’s worst COVID-19 outbreaks, with US sanctions and rampant misinformation heightening the health crisis. Featuring an exclusive interview with former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Maximum Pressure is a stark look at a country battered by the coronavirus and the fight to curtail the loss of life.

Under the Trump Administration’s now-infamous zero-tolerance policy, thousands of parents and children were separated from each other at the US-Mexico border. The policy sparked nationwide protest and faced legal blocks, but more than two years later, hundreds of families remain separated, and are languishing, as the administration pushes to further curb immigration. VICE correspondent Antonia Hylton follows the ACLU as they work across borders to reunite these families amidst growing legal headwinds for asylum-seekers.
