Banksy Makes his Mark in Boyle Heights

World-known graffiti artist, Banksy used the walls of Boyle Heights to make his statement– this time about immigration, using the well-known traffic sign on the U.S.- Mexico border.

As soon as its location was announced on the Boyle Heights Facebook page, Eastsiders ran to the corner of 1st and Soto St and later to Cesar Chavez and Pleasant Ave to take look and snap shots. Look out for more stencils like this one that may pop up in Boyle Heights.
