8 July 2017
Did you know that there is currently only one of these signs left standing in California (it was created by John Hood, an artist who worked for Caltrans)? Apparently they've outlived their usefulness, since immigrant crossings into California are way, way, way down from their peak in the 80s and 90s. There are still folks who want to come here, of course, and folks who make the journey, whether by this route or in some other fashion. We are a nation of immigrants, and I sincerely hope we do not choke off that legacy. We should be welcoming. Well, maybe not to a certain homicidal Russian autocrat. But normal folks, yes.
