3,121 Desperate Journeys: Exposing A Week Of Chaos Under Trump's Zero Tolerance by The Guardian
The result of a three-month investigation, 3,121 desperate journeys breaks down the real cost of the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy. The piece aims to tell the story of just one week under the policy, from the start of an immigrant’s journey to what happens after they cross the border. Using data collected by the Guardian by analyzing 3,500 court documents, the piece is anchored by recurring data visualizations that illustrate the scale of those affected. Stirring illustrations by Katherine Lam help punctate the page and provide a human contrast to raw data.
