Thousands of migrants from Haiti entered the US in September and took shelter under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas. The migrants typically passed through Central and Southern America to reach the US border in hopes of escaping deteriorating political and economic conditions in Haiti.
The route for Haitian migrants now under a bridge in a Texas border town goes through South America. Many flew to Brazil or Chile and, after jobs dried up, made an arduous journey to the border to wait in Mexican cities to enter the U.S. and claim asylum.
More than 10,000 primarily Haitian migrants stayed in a squalid camp under a bridge in southern Texas as hundreds more headed toward the border.
