Ghanaian-American artiste, Vic Mensa is taking on U.S. President Donald Trump for his family separation policy.
In a new interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber, Mensa explains his decision to condemn the Trump administration for their rhetoric about immigrants in the United States, adding that he hopes his art will “disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed.”
In June 2019, Mensa debuted a new video featuring children in cages – which a Trump official referred to as a “summer camp.”
The video draws attention to the work of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) – a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the United States tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the country.
