Besides, we can notice slums (=bidonville) in the background, so maybe poor immigrants want to/hope to cross the border. The baby can represent people who want to cross the frontier.

We can assume that the soldier is guarding the wall. The baby is peeking/is spying to see the other side.

A baby is innocent and peaceful therefore the artist wants to represent immigrants as innocent people.

Moreover there is no natural border. In 1916 after the Mexican revolution the border remained wide open.

There were just some monuments to mark the territory. Then, in 2001 after the terrorist attack the government decided to reinforce the policy of immigration.
