Hitting close to home. One of the Vietnamese detained is a Charlotte resident - a husband, father and business owner in our community. He was arrested by ICE hours after his wife gave birth to their child born 5-months premature.
More than 8,500 Vietnamese U.S. residents who have orders of removal for various reasons, and experts are concerned these detentions will set a dangerous precedent and put thousands of lives in jeopardy. As of Sunday, upward of 40 Vietnamese individuals were already being held at an ICE facility in Georgia.

This is what it looks like hiding from ICE inside of an apartment in Charlotte. I worked with a little girl who's mother was deported yesterday morning. ICE Officer's tricked her into coming outside by telling her that her car had been broken into. I spent the afternoon with her helping her process the experience through art. #stopdeportationsnow #papaloteproject #immigrationreform

I am extremely fortunate to be an ARTivist, and do what I love every day. As you can tell, there’s a great deal of anxiety in our Latino community and we have become aware of incidents where school-age kids have become targets of racial slurs such as ‘build a wall’ on school premises. Help me empower children by helping them understand the wide variety of possibilities for affecting change through art, beginning in their own communities - we are #HereToStay and we make America great.
