Photographer Veronica Gabriela Cardenas, based in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, wanted to document the plight of illegal immigrants, and she found a unique way to do so, without putting them at risk for deportation – she got her subjects to wear Donald Trump masks As they work in their respective jobs.

“After being bombarded with Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric, I figured that my duty was to give a voice to the undocumented immigrant community,” Veronica says.
