A Tale of Two Countries
Like most boundaries, the nearly 2,000 mile-long U.S./Mexico border is a jagged, blood-laced line that has divided homes, cities and cultures for generations. Now it slices through our politics and into the hearts of millions of people who cross from one side to the other. And even those who don't. While current discussions about immigration aren't just about this border, most of the concerns are. We turned to the TCU community to seek their thoughts. We welcome yours as well.
