The website was created by José Manuel Santillana, a first generation Chicano graduate student at the University of Minnesota. It is an extension of his Public Memory and Mass incarceration course concerning Latina/o immigration incarceration and deportation in the state of Minnesota. This projects seeks to create an ongoing archive of maps, documents, experiences and other materials regarding the subject. As such, it is also interested in making the connection between the Latina/o community and Native American community in the Twin Cities by exploring the concept “illegal.”
