The Source: Border Wall Rhetoric Versus Reality

Michel Marizco

Does campaign rhetoric about building a wall on the U.S./Mexico border for security match the reality of people living there? Along the 2,000-mile border, 652 miles of fencing and walls already exists and 115 miles of it is in Texas.

Reporters and photographers from the San Antonio Express-News traveled from Del Rio to Brownsville to find out what people who live and work along the border think about the wall.
