40 Stunning Photos Of The US-Mexico Border and the People Behind The Fences





The United States-Mexico border stretches 2,000 miles, separating deserts, lands, rivers and beaches. Several photos of it have shown just how divided these two nations are. Soon, there will be a physical wall that should end the interactions between people from both sides as President Donald Trump had signed the executive order for its construction.

Before that wall will be completed, here are powerful images of the US-Mexico border taken from the last few years, showing the vast landscapes and the typical scenes behind the fences.
