Daily Caller reporter Jorge Ventura visited areas of Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, Tuesday where thousands of Haitian migrants remain trapped after the closure of the Del Rio, Texas, port of entry.

Ventura entered the area of a makeshift camp built by mostly Haitian migrants currently stuck in Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, due to the closure of the Del Rio port of entry. In recent days, over 10,000 mostly Haitian migrants have entered or attempted to enter Del Rio, Texas, where many currently remain in harsh conditions.

“On the U.S. side, Border Patrol has started to deport single males and processing the family units,” Ventura said. He also said the Mexican community has been “generous” in giving food and supplies to the migrants.

Footage shows Haitian migrants on the Mexican side transporting supplies to migrants in Del Rio with a rope stretched across the Rio Grande river. Ventura said some migrants have returned to Mexico through the Rio Grande river due to poor conditions including a lack of food, water, and basic supplies.
