Navigating the border: The barriers that define the U.S.-Mexico borderline

In 1989, the first fence built to stop illegal crossings from Mexico to the United States was erected in San Diego, where the border begins.

The river winds through and defines more than half the border, creating one of many natural barriers between the two countries. The land here is a lush green, and fencing is set atop levees far from the banks, to prevent the fences from becoming dams that cause flooding.
