Migrants arrive in U.S. after crossing river on a raft from Mexico

Dozens of migrants who had crossed the Rio Grande river into the United States from Mexico on a raft waited beside the railroad tracks in La Joya, Texas, on Wednesday (May 5), as U.S. border patrol agrents prepared to transport them to a processing facility.

The migrants, who hailed from Romania, Armenia and Central America, included a group of unaccompanied minors.

The Biden administration has been grappling in recent months with a sharp rise in migrant crossings at the border, including unaccompanied minors and families with young children, mostly from Central America.

The U.S. this week will reunite four migrant families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border during the Trump administration, officials said, a small step toward fulfilling a campaign promise by Biden.

The Trump administration, known for its hardline stance on immigration, adopted a blanket “zero-tolerance” policy of prosecuting all unauthorized border crossers in spring 2018, resulting in the mass separation of parents from their children.
