Trump’s War on the Border takes a look at life on the U.S.-Mexican border as Donald Trump attempts to deliver his most controversial campaign pledge - the wall.

As well as insightful contributions from locals directly affected by the extension of existing border walls, Trump’s War on the Border shares the perspectives of both supporters and opponents of the plan.
