Families temporarily reunited at the U.S.-Mexico border in a video titled “Hugs Without Borders,” posted by AJ+ on Thursday. A gate in the border fence temporarily opened in Ciudad Juárez allowing dozens of families split between Texas and Mexico to reunite with loved ones without a visa. Hope Border Institute’s Dylan Corbett, who was present for the reunions, said, “We are demanding a stop to deportations, we are demanding a stop to policies which divide families, we are also demanding an end to the rhetoric we are hearing from some presidential candidates: hate, racism, xenophobia.” Corbett added, “This is not a place of hate.”
