Border Wall

For all of the talk of a supersized wall on the USA/Mexico border, few people from either country have visited the borderlands.

The wall is stuff of stories, true and mythical. On this page we curate some of the recent headlines and plot our next trip to the region.

In 1994-1996 I had the pleasure of reporting full-time on the borderlands. The wall, then as now, inspired strong political debate. Lost in the discussion were the social and environmental impacts. Now more than ever we need to reassess how we approach the wall.

In 2019 look for an expansion on Planeta.com of regional coverage.
