Mexican officials use BULLDOZERS to clear migrant tent camp at US border near Brownsville...


Mexican officials used bulldozers to clear a migrant tent camp at the U.S.-Mexico border after agreeing to do more to help curb migration as border crossing continue to surge.

Bulldozers torn down a migrant encampment in Matamoros, Mexico - near Brownsville, Texas - late Tuesday, while a U.S. delegation met with Mexico's president this week to discuss migration.

The city of Matamoros cleared out what they claimed were abandoned tents at the camp which was set up in late 2022. It once held as many as 1,500 migrants, but many tents were vacated in recent months as people waded across the river to reach the United States.
