The Illegal Superheroes Of California

The Illegal Superheroes Of California"Hello, you've reached the Illegal Super Heroes Department for the San Francisco Immigration Customs Enforcement Field Office. This is the report hotline for illegal super hero Superman.

Superman, perhaps the most notorious of all illegal super heroes, is known to have entered the U.S. countless times illegally since his first appearance in Action Comics #1 (1938). He was born on the planet Krypton and has resided illegally in Smallville and Metropolis.

He is suspected to currently be illegally present within U.S. borders. To make a report, please leave a detailed message after the tone.

Thank you & God Bless America."

This is Neil Rivas' Illegal Superheroes, a series of posters that takes current US law and policies and applies them to superheroic characters, to see if they would be covered by it. And pointing out how immigration laws treat people in ideological fashions, provoking thought.

The posters are on display at the Ramp Gallery in San Francisco.
