Check out our #FreeThemAll Billboards! New Mexico artists Josh Patterson, Marina Eskeets, Vicente Telles, Yvette Serrano, Eric J. García, Ese Spook, and Haley Greenfeather English have designed billboards located throughout the state of New Mexico in areas near detention centers to highlight the urgency for incarcerated people trapped inside jails, prisons, and migrant detention during a global pandemic. #FreeThemAll Billboards is a partnership between fronteristxs and OLÉ. The project is made possible with support from the Art for Justice Fund.

Call script:
Hello, my name is __________ and I am a constituent. I am calling with urgent concern about the health and safety of people inside New Mexico immigrant detention centers, prisons, and jails. I am urging you to save lives by requiring the immediate release of people in our state's jails and prisons, and asking for you to pressure ICE to release all migrants from detention centers because inaction is a death sentence.




In 2018, federal spending on immigration enforcement was $24 BILLION–approximately 34% higher than combined spending on FBI, DEA, Secret Service, US Marshals Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
.
The US incarcerates people at the highest rate worldwide: the US criminal justice system holds almost 2.3 million people in prisons, jails, and psychiatric hospitals at a cost of $265 BILLION a year. The US rate of incarceration is far higher than much larger countries like India and China, and more totalitarian ones like Russia and the Philippines. Mass incarceration is a form of legalized slavery and disporportionately impacts Black, Indigenous, Latinx people across the US.
.
We need to dismantle the carceral state. We need to divest from prisons and defund police. We need investments in healthcare, housing, education, and jobs. We need #CareNotCages.
