Event Description

Borders. Fences. Walls. They run deep in our national consciousness, our sense of self. They signal who belongs and who doesn't.

The greater San Diego area is part of a thriving border economy, where tens of thousands of people cross into the region each day and more than $40 billion worth of trade takes place each year. Yet drug smuggling, human trafficking and illegal immigration take place here, too. Some say we need to tighten the border, build a higher wall.

But borders are also places of encounter, discovery and ingenuity. The mingling of languages, cultures and ideas can make border regions exciting places to live, places of dynamic tension and possibility.

NPR's Going There with Michel Martin and KPBS present a provocative discussion about the creativity and the complications that come with living near the border.
