The article features the rust-colored steel wall snakes dividing the city of Nogales bordering Arizona and Mexico. The steel wall is a 15-foot-high decorated route with graffiti images. It is also built to protect the U.S. from low-wage laborers, terrorists and drug traffickers, as well as from the possible migration and population growth of ferruginous pygmy owls and desert bighorn sheep. Former President George W. Bush has signed a mandated act to regulate the scheme and completed the construction of the 670 miles of the wall.
