The Margins: Border Crossing | RYOT News

Each year, thousands of potential immigrants scale the border fence between Tijuana and San Diego. Crossing miles of arid desert, many have made it to the US, while thousands have perished in the process. We’ve all heard about the immigration journey, but none of us has ever seen it like this. RYOT teleports you to the Tijuana-San Diego border in virtual reality, where you’ll get the chance to live on the other side of the fence, and stare through the wire back at the USA. Experience Tijuana from a totally new perspective, and you’ll understand what it feels like to come face to face with iron bars separating you from another country. Seeing the border like this might surprise you, but it’s the reality that over a million people live with every day.
