"Travel Ban: Missouri"

I began this series after Trump instituted his first travel ban shortly after taking office. I decided to incorporate maps of individual States instead of international cartography because I feel that we Americans are having our civil rights and liberties become as obscured and obfuscated as the layered strokes I use to block out and distort individual state boundaries. As a nation, we citizens of every state and territory are suffocating from the lack of moral boundaries this administration spreads across our national landscape. This national “travel ban” attempts to create disunity and promote attacks against citizens trying to move away from this tyranny.
