Caution!! Migrant Workers of Arizona, One and All

Dan S. Wang & Nicolas Lampert

Dan S. Wang and I collaborated on a print to voice our opposition to the Arizona Immigration Bill SB-1070. The print references the look and the phrasing of a 1851 Broadside poster that was created in resistance to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 that was hung in Boston that alerted fugitive slaves and citizens to have a “Top Eye” open for the police who were empowered to detain all “suspected” escaped slaves so that they could be returned back to slavery in the South.

Our print rejects SB-1070 law and the climate of xenophobia in Arizona and beyond and stands in solidarity with migrant workers the world over.
