Gallery: 7th Annual ‘Hugs not Walls’ joins families at the border

The annual ‘Hugs Not Walls’ was held once again this weekend, reuniting families – if just for a few moments – in the exact centerline of the border.

Under the gaze of the Border Patrol, 300 families had the chance to hug for just three minutes in the middle of the Rio Grande.

Our very own Jordyn Rozensky was there and we bring you her view of the event in this gallery.
