This participatory theater program examines the conflicting mandates of contemporary immigration policy and the precepts of constitutional freedoms. Should cherished rights and liberties be extended to non-citizens residing in the United States, and if so, do those rights supersede the ideological imperatives of political power? A short film dramatizing a deportation trial is followed by a live audience debate about the case and its underlying issues. Ultimately, the audience votes to affirm or renounce existing immigration policy.
