Tear Down That Wall! Artists Resist Trump at US-Mexican Border

Tear Down That Wall! Artists Resist Trump at US-Mexican Border
- Mexican and international musicians performed a concert Saturday in Tijuana under the banner "Tear Down That Wall" to protest U.S. President Donald Trump's immigration policies and plans to build a wall along the 1,933-mile U.S.-Mexico border.
The concert was initially intended to take place on the U.S. side of the border at Friendship Park, NBC Bay Area reported, but was moved to the Mexican side after U.S. authorities denied permission for the event.
The U.S.-Mexican border is fertile ground for artistic protests, ranging from music to paintings and messages scrawled on the border fence as forms of resistance against harsh immigration policies and discrimination against migrants entering the United States.
