'Patriot Acts' explores the human cost of the Bush Administration's controversial National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS, also know as "Special Registration"). Instituted a year after 9/11, NSEERS facilitated the agenda embodied by the USA PATRIOT Act by requiring non-immigrant males, 16 and older, from predominantly Muslim countries to register with the Department of Homeland Security. "Nallamothu places a human face on families caught between national security and immigration bureaucracy in the Department of Homeland Security program . . . It's too bad she wasn't allowed access to the actual special registration proceedings, but what she does get, hanging out in law offices and homes, is gold." Rick Elder, Chicago Tribune
