Drew Sheneman, a democratic cartoonist, uses comedy to illustrate the hypocrisy of anti-immigration. In this mage, a conservative woman who opposes illegal immigration holds a sign reading: “Return to sender! We were here first! (Not really).” This sign refers to America being founded on stolen land. The woman also has a text box to indicate that she is saying: “When I see those little children fleeing their homelands, I ask myself: Who would Jesus deport (WWJD).” This statement references a generalization that conservatives are often Christians. It also implies some level of hypocrisy since WWJD refers to “what would Jesus do,” which, in this case, would likely be the opposite of what she is supporting.
