WICHITA, Kansas – A Wichita mural that declares “Immigration Is Beautiful” has been vandalized for the second time in five weeks.

The mural depicts a map of the United States, with images of the Statue of Liberty and two people wrapped in the U.S. and Mexican flags. It’s located outside a store in the northern part of Wichita.

Two swastiskas were painted on the mural late Monday or early Tuesday. Artists had recently cleaned the design of racist, anti-immigration and homophobic graffiti painted on it in mid-February.

Security cameras have been set up at the mural to catch any future cases of vandalism.
