A Border Patrol agent stands near a new fence segment while on patrol in Texas in 2012. This new design prevents people from walking through and climbing over the fence. In areas where following the Rio Grande’s curves would be too expensive, new segments are built farther inland. This cuts off American land from the rest of the country.
