Thousands of Illegal Immigrants Amass Under Bridge in Texas
DEL RIO, Texas—Thousands of illegal immigrants, mostly from Haiti, are congregating under a bridge in Texas while they wait to turn themselves in to the U.S. Border Patrol.
Immigrants were spread out over a span of dirt, many sitting or lying on blankets. Others stood, chatting with companions.
Some 8,000 illegal immigrants, including Haitian, Cuban, and Venezuelan nationals, are in the area, a Border Patrol source told The Epoch Times.
The number increased by about 2,000 overnight, sources said.
Other immigrants are making their way towards Del Rio through Mexico.
