Haitian migrants stranded at the border are choosing to return to Mexico in the face of mass deportations in the United States



  • 1The flow of migrants in the Rio Grande does not stop.

  • 2Since conditions in the camp under the Del Río international bridge are very precarious, migrants cross the Rio Grande every day to get food in Mexico.

    The water is up to their chests when they return from the American side.

  • 3 Several agree that the conditions under the bridge, to which the press has restricted access, are "very bad."

  • 4Almost 15,000 migrants were stranded on the international bridge that separates Mexico from the United States.

    Now there are fewer: some have been deported by the Joe Biden Administration and others have chosen to return to Ciudad Acuña, where another camp seems to be beginning to form.

    The place is becoming another camp, where some seek to cross through another point or begin their immigration procedures in the country.
