Wichita's "Immigration Is Beautiful" mural has been vandalized for the second time in five weeks.

The north Wichita 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.

Two swastikas were painted on the mural late Monday or early Tuesday.

Artists had recently removed 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.
