Border Hug

At a Hugs Not Walls event, a daughter gets the opportunity to be reunited with her mother and hug her for three minutes after not being able to see each other for years because of their migratory status. Hugs Not Walls is an event that reunites families from Mexico and the United States that have not seen each other in many years due to the immigration system. For several brief minutes at the Mexico/US border, they have the opportunity to see, hug and embrace their loved ones.
