On the Border With the Photographer John Moore

The Atlantic Logo By Alan Taylor of The Atlantic | Slide 1 of 44: A U.S. Border Patrol agent takes a selfie at the U.S.-Mexico border fence on April 30, 2016, near San Diego, California. On this day, five families, with some members living in Mexico and others in the United States, were permitted to meet and embrace for three minutes each at a door in the fence, which the U.S. Border Patrol opened to celebrate Mexican Children's Day. It was only the third time the fence, which separates San Diego from Tijuana, had been opened for families to briefly reunite.
