Over 10,000 migrants are currently waiting underneath the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas, waiting to be apprehended and processed after crossing into the United States illegally.
- Law enforcement source said that a large majority of the migrants are Haitians and more are arriving at the bridge by the minute.
- It is the latest scene of chaos at the border as the Biden administration continues to struggle to handle a continued and relentless migrant surge, which has overwhelmed authorities and led to Republican claims that the administration’s immigration policies are to blame.
- The FAA’s decision to ban drones from flying earned immediate criticism from conservatives on social media, including from Republican Sen. Tom Cotton.
- Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Wednesday that there were 208,887 migrant encounters in August, a slight decline from the 212,000 encounters in July and the second month in a row where the number of encounters breached the 200,000 mark.
