Border town

Tijuana lays a mere ninety miles south of Los Angeles, just over the Mexican border. Although the distance is relatively short, the cultural and economic disparities are vast. For the past three years, contention over America’s southern border has ratcheted ever higher, permeating the social fabric of both countries, often with dire consequences for those seeking refuge. With this in mind, David Adelson, an educator and independent journalist friend, and I decided to see for ourselves what the situation was like along the Tijuana/San Diego border.
