Photos From The Texas Border Show The Desperation Of Thousands Of Haitians At A Makeshift Camp

This weekend, the remote southern Texas town of Del Rio saw an influx of immigrants, many originally from Haiti, resulting in around 13,000 people living in a makeshift camp. As the border facilities lacked the resources to take in and process the overwhelming numbers of people, many families set up camp under an international bridge. With little food and water, individuals crossed the river again to get supplies in Mexico and returned to camp with whatever they could carry. On Sunday, US Customs and Border Protection officials stopped allowing people back into Texas, even if returning to camp under the bridge.

LIVE BLOG: Haitians deported from the U.S. clash with authorities while trying to rush back into plane

DEL RIO, Texas (Border Report) — A new work week begins today, but not for many residents on the border in Del Rio, Texas, where the international bridge leading to Mexico remains closed for the fourth day. The bridge was closed on Friday after an encampment under the bridge of migrants — mostly Haitians — swelled to almost 15,000. The issue is drawing national leaders. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas visited the bridge on Monday. U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz visited Sunday and said the numbers are now 12,662 and federal officials are getting the situation under control. Federal and state law enforcement have been surged to this rural border city that finds itself at the crosshairs of an international humanitarian crisis.
