Separating The Sea
In 1994 the Clinton Administration used recycled military landing mat across the U.S.-Mexico border from El Paso, TX to Imperial Beach, CA. The wall between the U.S.-Mexico border ended not on land, but several hundred feet into the Pacific Ocean. Many remarked that America was trying to “separate even the sea.” Over time, this fence has been built and rebuilt going into the Pacific Ocean.
