65 Foot high toddler peers across Mexico/U.S. wall

On the day Donald Trump announced the end of the DACA program, a giant cut-out of a Mexican toddler peeked out over the steel wall separating the U.S. and Mexico. The giant cut-out was erected in a remote section of the wall near the Tecate border crossing, 40 miles southeast of San Diego.

Designed by JR, a French artist, the large-scale portrait is part of his "Ellis Islands of Today" project, and was meant to prompt discussion of immigration. The piece will remain in Tecate for a month.
