WATCH: California Professors Install Seesaws Along U.S.-Mexico Border Wall


Two California professors created seesaws at the United States-Mexico border wall to allow children in both countries to play with each other.

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 idea for a “Teetertotter Wall” in 2009.

In one video posted to Rael’s Instagram page, several children are seen happily bouncing up and down on the bright pink seesaws. Another video shows people waving to children in Ciudad Juárez. Watch the full video above.

  1. Shouldn’t the walls be completely closed? Although these seesaws are cute, anyone can shoot in from the other side.

  2. Isn’t it trespassing? Funny, how the gubmit declares all kinds of no-go zones, such as in airports and even national parks, yet they can’t declare 30 feet on each side of the fence a closed security zone. Obviously, the gubmit is on the racket. Trump is not doing his job: he should have fired every single high ranking bureaucrat when he came into the office.
