Border Crisis Spiraling: Migrant Encampment Size Doubles Overnight


The catastrophe at the southern border is getting worse.

In a recent surge, the number of illegal immigrants living under the Del Rio International Bridge has increased significantly and now totals over 8,200 people.

They are awaiting “processing from the U.S. Border Patrol.”

The situation is “out of control,” according to Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin.

Melugin said, “Our drone is back over the international bridge in Del Rio, TX. Per source, the number of migrants waiting to be processed has now swelled to approx 8,200.”

“It was 4,000 yesterday AM. Doubled in one day. BP overwhelmed, & I’m told situation is ‘out of control,’” Melugin added.

“Law enforcement source on the ground at the bridge this morning just sent me this video showing the situation there,” Melugin said.

“I’m told a large majority of the migrants are Haitians and more are crossing into the US and arriving at the bridge by the minute. BP w/ limited manpower,” he continued.

“Our drone is currently over the international bridge in Del Rio, TX, where Border Patrol & law enforcement sources tell us over 4,200 migrants are waiting to be apprehended after crossing into US,” Melugin tweeted.

More from Western Journal:

The movement started over the weekend as hundreds of illegal immigrants were detained under the Del Rio International Bridge on Sunday. The Border Patrol faced large caravans illegally crossing into the United States, a Customs and Border Protection source told Breitbart News.

“More than 500 migrants were being detained outdoors in the temporary holding camp near the river’s edge as of Thursday. That number has now climbed to 1,500 and is likely to continue,” Breitbart reported on Monday.

“More than 2,000 Haitian, Venezuelan, and Cuban migrants recently surrendered to the Border Patrol in the area in a one-week time span.”
