"Fue degradante": La peores horas de un argentino deportado por nueva política de Trump

Publicado: 2 mar 2017 04:35 GMT

Pese a tener una visa de residente y ser dueño de una galería en Manhattan, Juan García Mosqueda no pudo regresar a EE.UU. y fue deportado a su país de nacimiento después de 36 horas retenido en el aeropuerto neoyorkino.

Este jueves, el argentino Juan García Mosqueda no podrá ser el anfitrión de la exposición "Domestic Appeal", que se inaugura en su propia galería. Fue deportado el viernes pasado.

"El proceso fue deshumanizante y degradante en todo momento", denunció este miércoles el argentino, dueño de la Galería Chamber, ubicada en el suroeste de Manhattan. Según Telam, el gobierno norteamericano le impidió la entrada a García Mosqueda, pese a que tenía residencia legal en EE.UU. desde hace diez años.

El curador de arte, egresado del Instituto de Arte de Chicago, se convierte así en el primer caso conocido de un argentino deportado, luego de que la administración del presidente Donald Trump decretara el endurecimiento de las medidas migratorias. 

Dear Friends, This past Friday, February 24, 2017, I was denied entry into the United States—the nation where I have been legally residing for the past ten years. The procedure was dehumanizing and degrading every step of the way. After being escorted to the secondary inspection premises, I was brought down for interrogation where I was questioned under oath and threatened with the possibility of being barred from entering the country for five years. The border patrol officer denied me the right to legal counseling, arrogantly claiming that lawyers had no jurisdiction at the borders. Shortly after my sworn statement was delivered to the chief officer in charge, they informed me that I was not permitted to come into the country and, therefore, would be forced onto the return flight to Buenos Aires later that evening. During the following fourteen excruciatingly painful hours, I was prohibited from the use of any means of communication and had no access to any of my belongings, which were ferociously examined without any warrant whatsoever. I was deprived of food. I was frisked three times in order to go to the bathroom, where I had no privacy and was under the constant surveillance of an officer. Finally, I was escorted by two armed officers directly onto the plane and denied my documents until I reached my destination, Buenos Aires. This thirty-six hour nightmare is nothing but clear evidence of a deeply flawed immigration system in the United States, carried out by an administration that is more interested in expelling people than admitting them. I was educated in America, worked at prestigious design entities, and, now, as you all know, own a gallery which employs Americans and non-Americans alike. Chamber supports architecture and design studios in the United States and abroad. I own several properties in New York and have collaborated in numerous projects with architects, contractors, and construction workers to bring to life projects around the city. We have created a network within the creative industries that span all disciplines and media that help individuals sustain their practices and do what they love. We proudly carry the New York flag to every(...)

Me negaron comida

García Mosqueda llegó a Nueva York procedente de Buenos Aires el pasado 24 de febrero. La policía migratoria no le permitió salir del aeropuerto JFK y lo retuvo allí durante 14 horas sin asesoramiento legal, refiere Perfil, tras lo cual fue embarcado en un vuelo de retorno a la capital argentina.

"Me prohibieron el uso de cualquier tipo de comunicación y el acceso a mis pertenencias, que fueron ferozmente examinadas sin ningún permiso. Me negaron comida. Me cachearon tres veces antes de poder ir al baño, en donde no tuve ninguna privacidad y estuve bajo vigilancia constante de un guardia", narró el curador de arte en una carta publicada en la cuenta de Instagram de la galería que regenta.

(...) fair that we do and every project we initiate across the globe. We self-publish books printed in the United States. And, needless to say, we pay considerable federal and state taxes that help fund many of the societal aspects that fuel the American engine. Although I am not an American citizen, Chamber is an American product that I hope adds to the cultural landscape of the country. The gallery was conceived in alignment with the same idea of inclusion that was found in the streets of the Lower East Side (where I live and was denied access to a few days ago) not so long ago: a melting pot of all nationalities and religions, importing ideas from abroad to a culturally embracing metropolis. We have worked with over 200 artists and designers, from Tokyo to Los Angeles, from Amsterdam to Santiago, in our less than three years of existence and rely heavily on social mobility to get our message across and display the works that we want to show. To my American friends, I urge you to contact your congressmen and push for immigration reform. Push for a system that does not alienate, intimidate, and bully foreigners but that, on the contrary, welcomes and encourages citizens from all countries to want to keep investing in and contributing to your wonderful country. This coming Thursday, I will not be able to celebrate the opening of our newest show, Domestic Appeal, which my team and I worked hard to conceive, and will not be able to meet some of the incredible participants that are traveling to the United States to take pride in displaying their creations in one of the most culturally relevant cities on the planet. Please come see it, have a glass of wine, and enjoy it on my behalf! Hope to see you all very soon, @juangmosqueda

El emprendedor artístico ha dicho que no declarará a la prensa sobre su caso mientras tramita su reingreso a territorio estadounidense y agradeció las muestras de respaldo que ha recibido "no sólo de la comunidad de diseño en Nueva York, sino de gente de todo el mundo". 

Presión política

Hasta ahora la cancillería argentina no se ha pronunciado sobre el caso, pero García Mosqueda ha hecho un llamado a sus amigos estadounidenses para que promuevan una reforma migratoria en el Congreso de su país: "Presionen por un sistema que no aliene, intimide y ataque a los extranjeros, sino que por el contrario les dé la bienvenida e incentive a ciudadanos de todo el mundo a seguir invirtiendo y contribuyendo a su hermoso país", agregó.

El caso del argentino no es el único de la comunidad artística. El director iraní de 'The Salesman', Asghar Farhadi, y el caramarógrafo sirio que participó en el documental 'The White Helmets', no pudieron asistir a la ceremonia de premiación de los Oscar este año porque tienen prohibida la entrada a EE.UU.
