I developed this piece in response to our country's devastating immigration policy that is separating families, traumatizing children, and creating a cycle in which parents are losing their parental rights after being deported.

The piece depicts a mother and child separated from a father. The father is depicted as an alien, alluding to the way in which inhumane immigration policy dehumanizes people. Using words like "illegal" and "alien", all words use by the Department of Homeland Security, criminalize migrants and set the stage for anti-migrant hate.
