This was a sad story on the end of a unique event happening at the border. People come down on weekends and have these picnics and/or get-togethers with family members on the Mexico side. Many times, a husband or wife will get deported from the U.S. and can only see their spouse and kids through this mesh fence. Well, in the name of "terrorism", which has become a buzzword for paranoid neocons to get government money to do most any security project, they will soon be building a secondary wall that will block access to these reunions. What's even more ironic is that this park was named "Friendship Park" and was dedicated to help relations between Mexico and America. We HAVE to become better neighbors to our allies.
