This piece addresses the parasidic relationship of drug-linked violence in Mexico, and mass immigration the the US. The text written on the flag is the following excerpt from the Mexican pledge of allegiance:

The independent, humane, and generous nation to which we give our existance

The piece has no front or back and symbolizes the barrier and escape of the border. It has contextual meaning from the Mexican side because the text is understood and they are aware of the issue. However, on the American side the text is backwards and metaphorically speaks of the lack of knowledge on our own behavior.
