From 2018-2019 thousands of immigrant youth were detained at Tornillo Detention Center in El Paso County, Texas. When the camp closed and the youth were dispersed, local advocates found and documented these precious examples of their art work, that bears witness to their creativity, resilience, and longing for freedom.
