“Adding” Immigrants to the Walls of Chicago




From Acciones in Chicago:

” I have a bit to say about one of the large issues int he country today.  And that is Immigration.  As a son of two once illegal immigrants from Mexico, I feel very strongly against the movement to send back all immigrants, after all immigrants did build this country.  I have started a project in which i can talk to people in my community and find out how they feel, i take their photograph and blow it up to later on paste on the streets.  I am trying to create the sense that i am “adding” immigrants to the city as opposed to kicking them out.”
