Erased original photograph by Tyler Hicks/The New York Times

Taken from the cover of today’s New York Times, the photograph I erased illustrates an article about brave Mexican immigrants who continue to attempt to cross the border, despite the increasingly dangerous conditions, so that they can be reunited with their families who have remained in the U.S. The fantasy of some Americans to be rid of all illegal immigrants in this country troubles me. I believe this country has the capability to develop more humane policies that take into consideration the structure of the family, and to not enact policies that erase family members from each other’s lives.
