This past June 2018 an independent Quinnipiac University National Poll revealed that the majority of republicans supported the zero tolerance policy of family separations at the US/Mexican border. In that moment, being myself a former undocumented immigrant, I knew something had to be done. That’s how this project was born and manifested in just 6 weeks with the support of a great creative team that felt this was a story that had to be told. ILLEGAL aspires to create reflection about the dehumanizing implementation of such policy towards undocumented immigrants. Beyond that, it makes a point that protecting our American values ought to be more fundamental than protecting our borders.
We thank you for your very kind consideration not just on our behalf, but also on the behalf of all refugees and immigrants seeking humanitarian solutions to their plight.
