On May 9th, the US Border Patrol Del Rio Sector tweeted a shocking image that immediately went viral. The photo depicted a group of migrants huddled together under a bridge, seeking shelter from the scorching Texas sun. The tweet read, “Agents assigned to Del Rio Sector apprehended over 100 migrants who illegally entered the U.S. within 5 minutes.”

The image and accompanying message illustrate the ongoing crisis at the US-Mexico border, where an increasing number of migrants are attempting to cross into the United States, seeking a better life for themselves and their families. The Del Rio Sector, which covers 41 counties in Texas, has been particularly hard hit, with a record number of apprehensions in recent months.

The situation in Del Rio has become so dire that Texas Governor Greg Abbott has deployed state troopers to the border to assist with border security. In a statement, Abbott said, “The Biden Administration has abandoned its responsibility to secure the border and Texans are paying the price.”

Critics of the governor’s decision argue that the deployment of state troopers is a political stunt aimed at winning favor with conservative voters ahead of the 2022 gubernatorial election. However, Abbott maintains that the situation at the border is a matter of public safety and national security, and that he will do everything in his power to protect Texans.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration has faced mounting pressure to address the crisis at the border. In March, the president tapped Vice President Kamala Harris to lead diplomatic efforts to address the root causes of migration from Central America. However, progress has been slow, and the situation at the border continues to deteriorate.

The Del Rio Sector tweet serves as a stark reminder of the human toll of the ongoing crisis at the US-Mexico border. As politicians continue to debate the best way to address the issue, it is the migrants themselves who are caught in the middle, risking their lives in search of a better future
