NPR on the U.S.-Mexico Border

Right now NPR is running an interesting series on the US-Mexico Border – the tagline is “Examining a Relationship in Flux”.

border-wall-gravesThe border is just a line. In the past it used to be a strand of barbed wire and some signs in the Arizona desert. Now it has become a barrier that’s harder and harder to cross. And being on one side of that barrier or another can dramatically affect your safety, your wealth and your opportunities.

In this series, NPR explores the border from Tijuana to the Texas coast. And most of the 2,000-mile frontier is infused with tension. Some of that tension comes from poverty. Some comes from the drug gangs. Some comes from the new fence and the Border Patrol agents in armored SUVs.

Be sure to visit NPR to check out the series.
