The Department of Homeland Security is sending 600 more agents to the border at Del Rio, Texas where thousands of refugees camped under a bridge are being taken back to Haiti. 

Haitians have been crossing the Rio Grande to get to Del Rio for weeks but Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Monday their numbers have swelled in the past few days.  

Del Rio officials say more than 14,500 migrants, mostly Haitians, are facing high temperatures and poor conditions in a camp under the bridge.
