FRONTLINE: Zero Tolerance Donald Trump has made opposition to immigration the signature policy of his presidency, and used anti-immigration fervor to animate his supporters and fuel a political movement. FRONTLINE reveals theinside story of how an unlikely group of outsiders became the driving force behind Trump's most controversial initiatives, as part of a grand strategy they would call ""Zero Tolerance.""
Drawing on nearly 40 lengthy, on-camera interviews, this documentary describes how Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Jeff Sessions saw in the Trump candidacy a chance to roll back immigration - and how they have waged a war inside the White House to keep an unpredictable president on course. Zero Tolerance shows that while Trump rode to power amid a chorus of ""Build the Wall,"" behind the scenes the president was an unreliable ally on implementing key anti-immigration plans. As the president waffled, Miller, Sessions and Bannon played the central role in bringing their ""imperfect instrument"" back into line.
It's a must-watch look at how America's immigration policies - and the rhetoric and images surrounding them -- reached this moment.
