(Unique Dia Del Nino celebration)… Children’s Day Is Tuesday, April 30th in Mexico . San Diego held a very brief celebration Sunday. It was organized by the Border Angels, and approved by the US Border Patrol. It was so special; San Diego Mayor Bob Filner even attended. There were over 100 people gathered on both sides of the Border Fence in Friendship Park in San Ysidro. At 12:13 in the afternoon the Border Patrol open a gate in the fence. The gate had not been opened since the steel fence was constructed in the mid 1990’s. It was left open just over 2 minutes, enough time to allow a father cross into Mexico and hug his small daughter. Filner also stepped into Mexico and said a few words. The gate was then closed, with no plans as to when it will be opened again.
