Smugglers allegedly cut a roughly 18-inch (1.2-meter) opening in the steel-pole of a border wall, since repaired, a breach that the U.S. Border Patrol said led to the "unintentional destruction" of a cross-border garden earlier this month in Friendship Park, located within California's Border Field State Park, in San Diego, Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020. The U.S. Border Patrol gave activists no warning this month after the breach believed to be by smugglers when it bulldozed the U.S. side of the cross-border garden which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. On Saturday, after a public apology for "the unintentional destruction," the agency allowed the activists in a highly restricted area to resurrect the garden. (AP Photo/Elliot Spagat)
