Peace at the US/Mexico Border Wall

Activists attach butterfly scarves and a peace sign on the US/Mexico border wall at Donna Texas/Rio Bravo Mexico. Their message- hope to resolve border issues with peace and humanity. Border Patrol officers watched patiently from across the road while I took photos of the display. All items were removed after the photos were taken.
