ABSTRACT
The article shares the author's insights on the significance of the oppressive wall that was built right through the communities by Washington decree. The author asserts that almost everyone who lives along either the side of U.S.-Mexican border including business owners, workers, ranchers, bankers and plain people have detested the idea of the said wall. Moreover, he points out that the border agents have revealed that they began seeing cuts in the towering wall almost immediately after it was constructed.
