“At this year’s Hugs, Not Walls, also known as ‘Abrazos, no Muros’, approximately 200 families reunited at the U.S.-Mexican border on the Rio Grande on June 19. The annual event brings families together from the United States and Mexico, some of which have not seen their family members in years.

This year marks the eighth Hugs, Not Walls, where many families, most of them separated by deportation, were able to reunite, embrace, and hug each other for three minutes. People of all ages, including fathers, mothers, grandparents, siblings, and children, participated in the event. After the three minutes were up, families had to say their goodbyes to their family members to allow other families to reunite.”

According to this article on The Texas Tribune, by URIEL J. GARCÍA

“A federal judge in Louisiana on Friday blocked the Biden administration from lifting a public health order that immigration officers have used to quickly expel migrants at the southwest border, including asylum-seekers.

District Judge Robert R. Summerhays, a Trump appointee in Lafayette, ruled that the Biden administration violated administrative law when it announced in April that it planned to halt Title 42, a health order aimed at preventing the spread of communicable diseases in the country, on Monday.

The ruling will most likely spark a monthslong legal battle. The U.S. Department Justice quickly filed an appeal Friday with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and said it believes that the Biden administration’s decision to lift 42 was legal.”

According to this article on El Paso Times, by Lauren Villagran

“EL PASO — A text from Border Patrol Sector Chief Gloria Chavez lit up El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniego’s cell phone at 5:53 a.m. on Sunday.

She delivered the news: Border Patrol’s Central Processing Center in El Paso was massively overcrowded. To relieve the strain, more than 100 asylum seekers were released Downtown, and they were on their own.

It was a relatively small group, given that Border Patrol had been taking in more than 1,000 people a day. There were people from Haiti, Ecuador and Turkey; all had legal documents and U.S. destinations in mind and quickly scattered in taxis and ride-shares.”

According to this article on Associated Press, by NICHOLAS RICCARDI

“President Joe Biden’s approval rating dipped to the lowest point of his presidency in May, a new poll shows, with deepening pessimism emerging among members of his own Democratic Party.

Only 39% of U.S. adults approve of Biden’s performance as president, according to the poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research, dipping from already negative ratings a month earlier.

Overall, only about 2 in 10 adults say the U.S. is heading in the right direction or the economy is good, both down from about 3 in 10 a month earlier. Those drops were concentrated among Democrats, with just 33% within the president’s party saying the country is headed in the right direction, down from 49% in April.”
