Hugs Not Walls – level 2
Many people come from Mexico into the US illegally to escape their home country’s problems. They become undocumented and are usually unable to see their families in Mexico again because of the risk of not being able to get back into the US.
An organisation wanted to help these people reunite with their families, so it asked the two governments to open the border temporarily at a spot along a canal between the two countries. People had three minutes to see their family members. The organisation called the event “Hugs Not Walls.”
Difficult words: undocumented (not an official person), reunite (meet together again), temporarily (for a short time), spot (place).
