Twenty-eight poets and visual artists (including myself) were selceted from a national competition by Benicia Poet Laureate, Ronna Leon, to colllaborate in a creative response to the news.

I am paired with Photographer, Rebecca Martinez, and we are responding to a news story on the topic of Politics and Immigration. We are responding to a NY Times story from March 29, 2011, titled "Arriving as Pregnant Tourists, Leaving With American Babies"
