As the U.S. continues to experience a massive influx of migrants along its southern border, reports indicate that thousands of migrants are congregated under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas, waiting to be apprehended by U.S. border authorities.

Fox News reported that Border Patrol and law enforcement sources told the outlet that more than 4,200 people are waiting there to be apprehended after entering the U.S. The Washington Times reported that the figure is over 4,500 people, according to Val Verde County Sheriff Joe Frank Martinez. KENS 5 anchor and reporter Vanessa Croix tweeted, "Officials tell me close to 6,000 migrants are waiting to be processed."

"These people are basically turning themselves in to Border Patrol, and Border Patrol has no room for them at the Border Patrol station," Martinez told The Washington Times. "They're technically not in custody. They come up, they're given a ticket for placement, and they're laying around waiting for a bus to pick them up."

"It is not safe, it is not healthy, for all involved, for the people that are down there underneath the bridge. It is a situation that in my opinion has gone south and it's not going to get any better until somebody does something," he said.

The outlet reported that Martinez said that the migrants head back into Mexico to obtain food and water and then return to the U.S. camp.
