"Before the Wall: California Geo-prison" 1 of 3

Prior to the Border wall construction that divided the ejido of Jacume from the unincorporated American village, Jacumba, this monument welcomed migrants crossing the desert Kumeyaay lands, at the international border of the United States. Those who were lost on the journey were honored with small trinkets, shoes, ribbons, candles, and rock piles all around the monument. No one is sure who built it, or how long it's been there, but everyone knows who tore it down. The original four foot border fence can be seen in the picture background. The "Are you nice" faced Mexico, and "Were we nice", faced the U.S. The monument was removed August 28, 2018.
