In photos: Border encounters at the fence dividing the United States and Mexico

At the Tijuana-San Diego frontier, the U.S. Border Patrol allows people from both countries to meet their loved ones at the fence in restricted weekend hours. The "Friendship Park" is the only place along the 2,000-mile border where these kind of interactions are permitted.
