"Hasta La Casta” is an intentionally provocative phrase riffing-off of “Hasta La Vista”. The word “Casta” refers to the Spanish Caste system, implemented during colonial Spanish America, instituting a class hierarchy based largely on skin color. The caste system is being recalled here to reflect the nature of the treatment of minority communities and specifically those undocumented citizens targeted by I.C.E. in the Trump administration.
