CROSS THE BORDER WITH TACO BELL
NO CROSSING THE WALL WITH SMART DETECTORS
Climbing the Wall and the Van of the Migra: Border US-Mexico
The issue of immigration was not tackled, reduced or resolved neither with the Bracero Program, the Maquiladoras, the opening of the Mexican Economy and its complete liberalization and privatization, and the Free Trade Agreements with the US and other nations around the world.
I arranged this painting to reflect the actual and current state of affairs of the immigration that is not only here in the United States an issue for the Presidential Elections but also in Europe which on both side of the problem is reflecting that all the measures to impose control on social movements while liberalizing the movements of the International Capital and the flow of the relevant and subsequent goods have both contributed in the exaggeration and the dramatization of the “Illegal Immigration” that for many other causes is sill seeking better skies under the shining sun of the Western Metropolis.

US, Mexico agree on trade deal: NYT
The U.S. and Mexico have reached a preliminary deal on NAFTA, The New York Times reports. The agreement paves the way for a pact between the two countries as early as today and ultimately with Canada, the third member of the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement. Talks have stalled for months over issues including car manufacturing. Under the draft deal, companies could only qualify for zero tariffs if they:
- Make “a greater proportion of an automobile’s value in North America.”
- Use more local steel, aluminum and auto parts.
- Pay a certain proportion of car workers at least $16 an hour.
More updates from around the country:
- Immigration to the U.S. will be suspended for 60 days, President Trump announced. Green card recipients will not be able to move to U.S. but temporary workers on nonimmigrant visas will be allowed to enter.
