'We're all in this together': Playing a game of catch along US-Mexico border

November 7, 2019   |  NBC San Diego

Joel Tauber is walking seven miles, every day for 40 days, along the U.S.-Mexico border playing catch with anyone who wants to play and have a conversation. “For me, baseball is a dream of America,” said the Wake Forest professor of art. Tauber talks baseball with women, men, and children from both sides of the border. He uses the sport as a metaphor for all things good between cultures and how it can bring people from different backgrounds together. “So many of us gather around and watch sports,” he explained. “Whatever boundaries there are, whatever borders there are, we’re all in this together. We’re all on the same team.”

Stan Meiburg, a former acting deputy EPA administrator in the Obama administration who now teaches at Wake Forest, said letting parties go straight to judicial review, if the proposed rule is enacted, “seems like skipping a step.”
