The number of migrants waiting under a bridge in Texas to be apprehended by the Border Patrol has doubled overnight and now tops more than 8,000 people, according to a report on Thursday.
Drone footage shot by Fox News shows the sea of migrants, the majority from Haiti, under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas, and sources tell the network that the situation is “out of control” and that Border Patrol agents are overwhelmed.
There were about 4,000 migrants at the bridge on Wednesday, but the number spiked overnight to around 8,200.
A law enforcement official told Fox News that most of the crowd is made up mostly of Haitians and more are arriving every moment.
The stunning images come a day after Fox News reported that there were more than 200,000 encounters with illegal immigrants at the southern border in August, marking the second straight month in which the numbers exceeded that amount.
