North America;United States of America
Over 10,000 asylum-seeking migrants, mostly from Haiti, have set up camp under the International Bridge between Mexico and the U.S. in Del Rio, Texas, in what has become a growing humanitarian and political challenge for U.S. President Joe Biden, Reuters reports.
Haitians are fleeing a country hammered by political turmoil and two recent natural disasters.
The large and still growing group of migrants have been sleeping on the ground and desperate for food in a squalid camp under a bridge in southern Texas, according to Reuters.
