We have criminalized poverty, migration, work, and hope.
Only the most vulnerable element of our corrupt and exploitative system of underground labor, the workers, are disproportionately punished and branded as villains and illegals, while businesses, homeowners, consumers benefit.
This new video features powerful images taken of migrants in Mexico and the US Mexico border by photo journalist Ken Light over the past four decades. They are painful to watch. but important to see, as they reveal a reality for many today, and the family history of many living among us. The music is our Mexican son version of George Harrison's classic song Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth) that we recorded with David Hidalgo.
