(please compare to the 'live' version next to it)
it is common to see in tijuana complete families just walking or waiting around the streets, they arrive to Tijuana expecting the "coyotes" to help them cross the border illegaly, usually they don't have money to pay for a hotel or a place to stay, so they just gravitate around the city... waiting for a gap to open on the fence, heartbreaking scenarios

thank you for all of this information. I knew of course, but as a visual thinker you bring it home to me much, much more clearly. these images should be used in an exhibition somewhere

yes helen i agree
there is a big artistic movement around Tijuana and San Diego that is concerned with border issues, I will try to find out more about these posters and the artists, I am thrilled that they were able to display these posters straight were they belong, I'll keep you posted as I find more information
