Mexican officials use bulldozers to clear migrant tent camp at US border

Mexican officials worked with bulldozers Wednesday to clear out a ragged migrant tent camp next to the Rio Grande in Matamoros, Mexico.

Migrants at the encampment in Matamoros, which borders Brownsville, Texas, first moved into the area in late 2022. The encampment once held as many as 1,500 migrants, but many of the temporary shelters were vacated in recent months as the migrants fled to reach the U.S.

The removal came as a top level U.S. delegation met with Mexico’s president in Mexico City’s National Palace to discuss how to curb the unprecedented surge of migrants reaching the U.S. border.
