In 10 years.

That is ridiculous.

So what we wanted to do is to bring those families together and embrace and hug even for a few moments, for a few minutes in the middle of the rio grande."

Patrick: fernando garcia is the executive director for the border network for human rights, a local human rights advocacy group.

He says hugs not walls is against immigration policies that have torn families apart.

Garcia says he hopes this weekend's event promotes humane immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship despite today's executive orders.

Garcia: "i don't expect it to be different and i don't expect anybody to be against families wanting to embrace.

It is a human act."

Patrick: the event starts saturday morning at 8 o'clock at chihuahuita park in el paso.

And of course, we'll be there.
