Excerpt from detainee’s letter: ““I have a couple of witnesses that saw when deportation officer handcuffed me in the back and they saw when I went back to the unit with several scars and bruises and scratches in my wrists from the handcuffs.” – Mr. Gutierrez

Artist statement: “What I wanted to convey with this piece is emotion. The emotional toll of facing so many unjust situations and treatment, the mental and physical pain that was described by the author of the letter i illustrated, and the reaction of the guards and the man. I’m honored to be working with the brave families who have gone through so much and the organizations fighting to get their story out.” -Robert Trujillo
