Deport the Statue of Liberty? Crazy, right?
But you know what’s really crazy?
Deporting millions of human beings who have lived and worked in the U.S. for years and call this country their home. And that is what’s been happening for years under U.S. immigration policy.
Today, we have the chance -- and the power -- to change that. That's why Breakthrough had to get extra-creative. We created the red herring "LegalsPAC," the Legals for the Preservation of American Culture, a group focused on deporting the statue of liberty due to her immigration status. Led by fictional CEO Harvey Knowles Brier, our humorous spoof universe stretched from fake twitter accounts to websites to email threads. The fictional world was created solely to help build a larger and louder groundswell than ever around immigration in the U.S.
Today, we have the opportunity to #TakeLibertyBack -- to build an America that values the freedom, dignity, and humanity of all the women, men, and children who live here.
As seen on CNN's The Situation Room.
