Migrants at Texas bridge pose challenge for Biden

Wading through the waters of the Rio Grande, thousands of migrants are on a journey to the bridge that connects Del Rio, Texas and Mexico's Ciudad Acuña.

It's part of the latest border emergencies facing U.S. President Joe Biden.

The total number of people at a makeshift camp under Del Rio International Bridge was over 10, 500 migrants on Thursday night, said local Mayor Bruno Lozano.

Migrants are mostly Haitian, Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan.

When they arrive at the camp, some have said they had to turn back to Mexico in need or food and water while they await processing.

However, authorities say they have supplied essentials to migrants.

As border arrests hover around twenty year highs.

U.S. authorities arrested more than 195,000 migrants at the Mexican border in August, that's according to government data released on Wednesday.
