“Border Patrol holds migrant families for days under a south Texas bridge.”

On Wednesday, March 24, 2021, Los Angeles Times reported that, “Amid an increase in migration that has overwhelmed U.S. immigration officials, hundreds of migrant families, including newborn babies and pregnant women, have been detained for days under a border bridge in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley.”

Molly Hennessy-Fiske wrote, “Up to 600 families were assembled in recent days at the site under the Anzalduas International Bridge in Mission, Texas, sleeping in the dirt, exposed to the elements, without much food or access to medical care, according to several people who said they were released this week by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”

“We asked them why we were there for so long,” Karen Coello, 24, of Honduras, who had been kept at the site for three days with her 5-year-old daughter, Valeria, said Tuesday after being released to a local shelter. “All they told us was, ‘That’s your problem.’”

Molly adds, “At the bridge site in Mission, there were no telephones for migrants to use or representatives from Central American consulates for them to speak with, they said, unlike at other large Border Patrol holding areas in the past. Some migrants had cellphones, but they had to place them in sealed property bags Border Patrol forbade them to open.”

“Under the bridge: migrants held in El Paso tell of dust, cold and hunger.”

On Sunday, March 31, 2019, Ed Pilkington and Edwin Delgado wrote on The Guardian, “For three days and nights, Maria and her 14-year-old son were penned behind barbed wire, under a bridge in El Paso. Cold, hungry, surrounded by sick and crying babies and with only the stony ground for a bed, her first experience of America was not as she had imagined.”

“I came here to work and get a better future for my family,” she said. “I never thought I would go through this.”

Maria (who is from Guatemala and who requested the Guardian not use her real name) and her son are among hundreds of Central American migrants who have been detained by US immigration agents in an area of dirt under the Paso del Norte bridge. The full brutality of the conditions in this makeshift prison-cum-shelter is only now starting to emerge.

Reporters are being kept away from the area under the bridge, which connects El Paso with Ciudad Juarez in Mexico. But migrants who have been held there, some for hours, others like Maria for several days, have begun to tell their stories.

The hunger and the cold are the worst of it, Maria said. At night a cruel wind whips underneath the bridge, kicking up dust and stinging eyes and skin.”
