Fabiola Post #2

Matt gainer, in his project Imperial, is trying to focus on the American Southwest borderlands, while bringing together two contradictory ideas; the old west meshed with modern illegal immigration. In a very striking manner, he shows how modern Americans fighting against illegal immigration are holding onto the ideals of the old west and the cowboy way where one could argue there was no such thing as illegal when everyone did what was necessary to survive regardless of morals.
Its further interesting how he captures the tiny town Imperial. This impoverished community is where people from around the nation find themselves struggling to survive.
