The Courtroom

Jan 23 - Feb 19, 2019


A RE-ENACTMENT OF DEPORTATION PROCEEDINGS
Performed in Active Legal Spaces

In 2004, an immigrant from the Philippines who was married to a U.S. Citizen came to this country on a K3 Visa. After inadvertently registering to vote at the DMV in Bloomington, IL, receiving a voter registration card in the mail, and voting, her removal proceedings were set in motion. It began in Immigration Court and her case was eventually heard by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.

The Courtroom is performed entirely verbatim from court transcripts.
