I am not a graffiti nor Banksy expert for those purists out there. I spotted this on 19th Street, between Valencia and Lexington. The graffiti depicts a black and white ICE agent chasing a colored Speedy Gonzalez. Interesting that the description makes the subjects stand out by the color they are depicted in.
Banksy has been known to visit San Francisco, and has plastered works of art on the streets of the Mission District. I remember having seen a Native American graffiti on the wall outside the Sycamore, on Mission Street. Valencia Street has also been used as a canvas.

A closer examination of immigration data shows that immigrants living illegally in most of the continental U.S. are less likely to be deported than before Obama came to office. READ MORE HERE.
