This anti-border wall song is heavily influenced by the musical cultures of Cuba and Puerto Rico. Read the words of image artist, Cynthia Ramirez.

"The imagery is based on the traffic signs on the side of the road along the border. “Watch out for fleeing families.” The flags on top are the blending of the US & Mexican. My family is from south Texas where people used to come and go across the Rio Grande as if there was no border. The three skulls on the top speak, see, and hear no evil. What is going on at the border is an atrocity. Some Americans choose to ignore the separation of families, unlawful imprisonment, and death, so they can feel "safe." Ignorance is bliss, I guess. Hanging in the middle of the piece is a Santa Muerte medallion, which is an image that is seen all along the border. Altars to her are found in the desert as a protective symbol to all who are migrating."
