Abstract

Borderline was created to speak for unlawful immigrants, first-generation Americans, and Dreamers in the United States. It was created to inform people of immigrant-related issues, deportation, and injustices occurring during Donald Trump’s presidency. Nine posters were created to make up the body of work, each reflecting on a different immigration issue; Anchor-Baby, [Import \ Export \ Deport], Dreamer, You Will Pay for It, Trump’s America No. 1, Trump’s America No. 2, Caution, This is America: “The American Dream,” and Paid for By You & Me. The body of work was shown at The College of Design’s Gallery 181 at Iowa State University. Borderline also reached users through its website (officialborderline.org) and social media; Facebook, and Instagram.
