"Deport the Statue" Campaign 2 Favorite

New York NY

It’s time to deport the Statue of Liberty.

That’s the latest mission for Legals for the Preservation of American Culture, an organization which has begun the “Deport the Statue” campaign for the removal of Lady Liberty through four Twitter accounts and a video that hopes to prove the iconic statue is not only an undocumented French immigrant but is “taking a job away from a qualified American statue.”

In their ongoing #ImHere campaign, the human rights group aims to “keep the human rights of immigrant women on the national agenda,” especially as an immigration reform bill makes its way through Congress.

The project hopes to bring attention to the choices many undocumented women face in choosing whether to keep their families together or seek help under threat of deportation.

This satiric video suggesting the deportation of the Statue of Liberty was picked up by many news outlets including CNN. The video itself received over 90,000 views.
