Our Land: At the Border

Our Land_Border Wall

December 13, 2019 – Along the U.S./Mexico border in southern New Mexico, there isn’t a river, or landforms, to divide the two countries. For decades, there have been barbed wire fences or vehicle barriers. Now there is construction along the border, as the Trump administration grants contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Correspondent Laura Paskus visited the border in southern New Mexico to visit where 30-foot tall steel bollards have been installed and to see where the wall currently “ends.”
