Ronni Santa Domingo Krome # 289 Blue Ronni left Santo Domingo looking for a better life. He lived in Puerto Rico illegally for eleven years and has four children. He was arrested by Immigration and sent to Krome. After his arrest, he realized that his family is all he has. He found out who his real friends are after being detained and believes he is 100% a better person for having been here. His God means everything to him. @josealvarezdopa #thepromisedland #immigration #portrait #immigrantrights #immigrantsartist

Tinky- Winky El Salvador Blue 21 years old Tinky-Winky was nicknamed after the popular children’s Teletubby character. He was brought from El Salvador as a baby but he never resolved his paperwork. He became a father in the United States. He was arrested by Immigration and brought to Krome. He would call his little girl every night and sing her songs. He kept telling and yelling to everyone, “I am an American, my life is here. I don’t know anybody in El Salvador.” In spite of everything, he was deported. You may have seen this graphic being circulated, a handy graphic to inform immigrants of their rights during raids. Donate to @informed_immigrant so they can keep circulating important resources like this! @josealvarezdopa #thispromisedland #knowyourrights #immigration #immigrantartist #informedimmigrant

Luis Mexico Blue 70 years old Luis came to the US 20 years ago. A lobster fishermen living in the keys, he rented rooms in a building with several tenants. One of those rooms was occupied by an American couple living in an abusive relationship. On one occasion they got into a very heated altercation where the male left the female badly beaten. Luis went upstairs and took care of her wounds and explained to her that it had become very evident that they couldn’t stay any longer because other tenants were complaining, and that he would help her find another place. She decided to report him to Immigration because she knew he was illegal. He was arrested and sent to Krome. When I spoke with him I told him that he could potentially argue his position and try to fight to keep everything he built over the years, to which he replied; “I’m seventy years old. I’m realistic.” I couldn’t finish the drawing. He was deported three days later. As raids continue, please consider donating to Freedom For Immigrants ( @migrantfreedom), an LA organization dedicated to abolishing immigration detention worldwide. @josealvarezdopa #immigration #deportation #enddeportations #thepromisedland #josealvarez

Carlos “el Parce”(buddy) Colombia Krome #016, Orange 41 years old Carlos has been living in the United States for 26 years and is married to an American citizen. He has a nine-year-old son with mild autism ---his reason for living, he says. He asked for political asylum from Colombia in 1994 but it was denied. He’s the youngest of a family of seven, all of whom are legal but himself. He thinks his arrest, like everything in life, happened for a reason. Consider donating today to RAICES ( @raicestexas), a Texas non profit that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. @josealvarezdopa #krome #immigration #immigrantrights #enddetention #stopice #raices #raicestexas

These men are what Jose Alvarez refers to as his ghost drawings. These are the men who disappeared, who were deported, before he got to hear their stories. While Jose Alvarez drew these pictures and recorded these men’s stories in 2012, people today, right now need the same help. Starting Sunday, ICE will begin raids in 10 major cities - including LA and Miami. We will be highlighting different organizations over the course of this exhibition that we encourage people to donate to and support. @josealvarezdopa @missgavlak #abolishice #immigration #krome #josealvarez

Over the course of the exhibition we will be posting a daily portrait and the story of each man Alvarez drew while he was incarcerated.
