Forbidden To Cross The US-Mexico Border But Marrying Anyway
Published on December 01, 2017
It's a Romeo and Juliet story in the age of uncertain border politics.
Two lovers were recently married at the U.S.-Mexico border. In order for the couple to marry, Border Patrol agents opened the "Door Of Hope," a gate separating San Diego and Tijuana, for one hour.
This love affair marks the sixth time that the gate has been opened in the last four years. The gate only opens for family reunions or weddings like this one.
The couple, American Brian Houston and Mexican Evelia Reyes, met three years ago in Tijuana and fell in love. They speak every other day on the phone and hope that eventually they'll be on the same side of the border.
Will such weddings be possible if Trump builds his wall?
