Fernando Orozco and his wife, Marta Ramos, embrace through the iron posts of the U.S.-Mexico border fence. Orozco is a legal U.S. resident who works in Santa Monica; his wife is a Mexican citizen. When construction of a second parallel fence through Border Field State Park is completed later this year, reunions like this won't be possible.
