“The struggle for legalization is vividly expressed in Linda Vallejo’s Immigration USA (2008): immigrants march, united by a common cause, accompanied by words such as ‘Hope and Desperation’ and ‘One March, Many Journeys.’ This work captures the aspirations of millions who want to live in this country without fear of the authorities.”
