Greg Abbott: Biden administration 'handling the border crisis as badly as the evacuation from Afghanistan'

The mass of migrants camped out underneath a bridge in Texas swelled to more than 9,000 Thursday as the Biden administration struggled to control a new hotspot testing its ability to manage the border.

One law enforcement source said there were about 4,500 on Wednesday, and by Thursday afternoon the group had doubled to 9,145 people, most of them Haitian migrants, with some Venezuelans and Cubans also present.

They have flooded the border in Del Rio, Texas, and the Border Patrol says it has nowhere to put them. So they’ve been told to wait under the International Bridge for a chance to be processed. Customs and Border Protection says the bridge at least provides shade to protect them from heat-related illnesses.
