The series & assignment
This article is one in a series created by students in Mr. Alex Escamilla's journalism class at Southwest Community Campus. Students were asked to complete artwork and write an article regarding immigration issues in Grand Rapids, and America as a whole. Students worked with artist Reyna Garcia and Grandville Avenue Arts and Humanities to complete artwork that best showed their views on immigration.

All artwork will be displayed in an upcoming art show, open to the public.
Users may vote, comment, share, or tweet these articles up until the art show. The student whose article and artwork receives the most votes, comments, shares, and tweets will receive a special Rapidian award.

Many Latinos living in the United States feel that some ICE police officers are unjust and unfair. They arrest undocumented parents and they don't care if they're separating families. All families deserve to be treated equally, and to live as a family unit. We should not be treated like animals. We have feelings for our own family members.
No matter what color, religion or culture we come from, families deserve to grow together. Everyone should treated equally.
Our mission is to transform lives in the Grandville Avenue neighborhood through reading and the arts and celebrating the community's cultural richness.
