Hugs Not Walls – level 3

Hugs Not Walls – level 3

Many undocumented people from Mexico come to the US, but it is difficult for them to ever see their families again in Mexico because if they go back, it can be challenging for them to return to the US.

To help this situation, an organisation asked the two governments to open the border at the Rio Grande Canal between El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico. The leader of the organisation said that these problems were due to a "broken migration system" and he hoped that the event would make people think about the US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's promises to build a wall between the US and Mexico.

The organisation called this event “Hugs Not Walls,” as it was a 3-minute event to open the border and allow families to reunite. It had to be a short event since the border cannot be open for very long.

Difficult words: due to (because of), reunite (meet together again).
