WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – Volunteers have removed two swastikas that were spray-painted onto a Wichita mural that celebrates immigration.
On Saturday, volunteers scrubbed off the two swastikas that had been sprayed in black paint onto the mural.
The mural, which was painted by a group of high school students on the side of a store, depicts two people wrapped in flags, one an American and one Mexican. The mural reads: “Immigration is beautiful.”
In early February, vandals also spray-painted the words “KKK,” ”welfare” and slur against people from Mexico on the mural. Volunteers removed that graffiti too and added a clear coat, which made the latest vandalism easier to remove.
Security cameras have also been installed to catch any future vandalism.
