A poll we reported on earlier this week asked residents who live along the U.S.-Mexico border for their opinions about a new border wall between the countries.

Most, 72 percent of U.S. respondents, said they were against the idea of a wall, while 86 percent of those on the Mexican side were opposed.

So how does the concept—which presidential nominee Donald Trump has floated extensively—affect potential relations between the nations, even if it never actually comes to fruition?

To learn more, we talked with Erik Lee, executive director of the North American Research Partnership.
