Pete Railand depicts a man looking at the border as a train passes through, traveling from Juarez to El Paso. Raoul Deal shows a mother grasping her child amid a protest for the DREAM Act as their uncertain futures lie in the hands of the US government. Both prints comment on the broken immigration system that affects the livelihoods of thousands of people. While capital and goods are easily transported across borders, the same cannot be said for these individuals.

Deal is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. He prides himself as being a community artist who creates community art projects and interventions in Milwaukee neighborhoods. Railand, a printmaker, is also from Milwaukee.
