Images coming out of the makeshift migrant camp under a bridge in a Texas border town reveal the horrendous conditions thousands of people are living in — from seeking shelter from the brutal sun inside tents fashioned from pieces of cloth to using jugs of water to bathe, all the while surrounded by ever-growing mounds of garbage.

The humanitarian crisis underway on the border near Del Rio, Texas, includes adults, children and babies among the estimated 12,000 mostly Haitian migrants waiting to be processed by US border officials.

They began to gather last week under the International Bridge that connects Del Rio with Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, but the number of migrants soon exploded as streams of more migrants, many coming from South America, waded across the Rio Grande river into the US.

The photos depict scenes of misery and squalor more common to Third World countries than a US border town.

In one, a family seeks shelter in a rickety tent constructed of pieces of brightly colored fabric attached to a structure of discarded tree branches.

Pieces of cardboard and a carpet separates them from the dirt underneath.

Other similarly improvised tents dot the landscape.

In another photo, a man pours water on his young son from a gallon jug in an area strewn with tree limbs and garbage.

During the day, the migrants try to protect themselves from the broiling sun and the temperatures that soar into the high 90s, and at night, the camp takes on an eerie quiet.

As the people climb into their tents, few can be seen walking around the encampment, and lights from across the way shine on the ramshackle structures built around the bridge’s piers.

In one photo, a child hoists a jug of water to bathe himself in the middle of the makeshift dwellings.

And despite the Biden administration’s claims that a massive effort is underway to send the illegal immigrants back to Haiti amid warnings not to travel to the border, one photo shows a line of people being processed as they wait to be released into the US, the Associated Press reported.

The wire service said the Department of Homeland Security has been busing Haitians from Del Rio to El Paso, Laredo and other locations along the Texas border.

DHS also began flights to Tucson, Ariz., the report said.
