Thousands of Haitian migrants cross US border in Texas - DW News.

A sudden wave of thousands of migrants, many from Haiti, has sparked a humanitarian crisis at the US-Mexico border. The Texas border town of Del Rio is struggling to cope with the massive influx. In response, US authorities have moved around 2,000 people to processing centers - as a first step to deporting them.
Thousands of migrants - many of whom began their trek overland as far away as Colombia – are finding their long and often dangerous journeys stopped at the international bridge connecting Del Rio in Texas to Mexico's Ciudad Acuña.
The situation is becoming desperate.
Overwhelmed by the surge of asylum seekers, the US Department of Homeland Security announced it will use a pandemic-related authority to immediately expel migrants back to Haiti without allowing them an opportunity to claim asylum. But with the promise of a better life within sight, migrants refuse to give up their dreams of a new life in America.
With no better option, than to hunker down, and hope – scores of people waded back and forth across the Rio Grande into Mexico to resupply, buying water, food and diapers before returning to the Texas side, and the uncertain wait under the bridge.
