“The Deportation Experience” is a testimonial that aims to highlight the abuse of authority, human degradation and psychological abuse that the officers and the system exercise towards people who are deported from the United States; Hoping that the public will reflect on the trauma that these situations cause and invite them to denounce that it is NOT right that people are not treated as people, that the authority abuses their power.
