Listen to the story.

Calexico, California and Mexicali, Mexico are two desert towns, yards away from each other along the US-Mexico border. When the US Government erected a 14-foot-high, 2 mile-long steel fence along their border, some local residents tried to bring the two towns back together. Produced by Polly Sveda.
