Various of Río Grande (river) with Haitian migrants crossing into the US from Mexico, border patrol cars on US sideSTORYLINE:Drone footage filmed on Tuesday showed Haitian migrants crossing a river which separates Mexico and the US as officials from both nations worked to move them away from the border.The migrants were seen in the Rio Grande as Mexico began busing some of them away from the area.However, many of them still managed to cross into the US as border patrol officers patrolled on land.More than 14,000 mostly Haitian migrants have assembled around a bridge in Del Rio, a town in the state of Texas of only 35,000 people.To deal with the influx of crossings, the US government has ramped up expulsion flights to Haiti.Haitians have been migrating to the US in large numbers from South America for several years, many having left their Caribbean nation after a devastating 2010 earthquake.After jobs dried up from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, many made the dangerous trek by foot, bus and car to the US border, including through the infamous Darien Gap, a Panamanian jungle.Mexico has so far made only small-scale arrests both in the border city of Acuña and in other parts of Mexico where Haitians are in transit.So far this year, more than 19,000 Haitians have opted to apply for asylum in Mexico.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
