These words come from an undocumented immigrant mother, Ana, fighting with her daughter their deportation. After spending almost a year in Berks Detention Center, Ana and her daughter were deported back to their native country of Guatemala. A judge in Philadelphia recently declared her deportation unjust and ordered that they be brought back to the United States.
Over 30 volunteers and community members from Juntos came out to help me place my artwork in front of the ICE building on 16th and Callowhill.
This is a great accomplishment, but the greater accomplishment will be when the people detained in that building are reunited with their families.
