"Show Us Your Papers"

Sweeping, draconian immigration laws passed in Arizona and Alabama earlier this year were the most prominent racial profiling laws passed in recent history. Not only are they unconstitutional, they are squarely aimed at people of color. This sculpture represents the different faces of immigration and the families being torn apart as a result of these laws. The paradox for these xenophobes is: what papers to show? We have no national ID and this is a solution in search of a problem. Stop the corporations in those and other states from exploiting desperate undocumented workers. But that will never happen as long as politicians continue to heed the howls from some of their largest donors who most likely are those very same employers. Title of sculpture, " Immigration or Show Us Your Papers"
