A group of ultra-right, pro-Trump Mexicans announce a solution to Trump's wall-building difficulties: they themselves will be that wall. In fact they already are: xenophobic Mexicans routinely make life difficult for Central American migrants, and are thus in cahoots with Trump. A spectacular music video and website with migrant-identification keys perpetuates the illusion... which is, sadly, no illusion at all. Two dozen collaborators brought together in Chiapas by the Hemispheric Institute put together this project. Update: in November 2018, for reasons unknown, this project went viral in Honduras. See coverage on Hyperallergic and On the Media (NPR).
