Two California Professors Build Seesaws Along The United States/Mexico Border Wall

Posted by

Two California professors created seesaws along the United States-Mexico border wall to bring unity to children in both countries. Ronald Rael, an architecture professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and Virginia San Fratello, an assistant professor at San José State University in California, came up with the amazing idea of the “Teetertotter Wall” back in 2009.

The teetertotters came together at an event Monday in Sunland Park, New Mexico. Three bright pink teetertotters were added to the border wall.

“One of the most incredible experiences of my and @vasfsf’s career bringing to life the conceptual drawings of the Teetertotter Wall from 2009 in an event filled with joy, excitement, and togetherness at the borderwall,” Rael wrote on Instagram.

“The wall became a literal fulcrum for U.S.-Mexico relations and children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side,” he wrote.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to announce that he was cleared by Supreme Court to go into the Defense Department’s $2.5 billion money to build 100+ miles of wall.

Trump tweeted, “Wow! Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed. Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!”
