'The situation is out of control':


Some 8,200 migrants seen under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas on Thursday 

The migrants, most of whom were from earthquake-ravaged Haiti, were waiting to be processed 

That number is double the amount that were seen under the same bridge on Wednesday, Fox News reports

More than 2,200 Haitians died and 100,000 homes destroyed after 7.2 magnitude earthquake on August 14 

Border officials told Fox News that the situation along the US-Mexico frontier was 'out of control' 

Earlier this week, it was reported more than 200,000 migrants again crossed the US-Mexico border in August 

That is still fewer than the 212,000 encounters that were reported in July, according to border officials

But the August figure still represents a whopping 317% increase in crossings compared to August 2020
