Obama described the situation in Del Rio as painful and said the open border policy is unsustainable.The influx of migrants through the southern U.S. border has increased ever since Biden took office. The administration has been criticized for handling the migrant issue. The recent influx of thousands of migrants from Haiti in Del Rio has raised concerns amid the spread of the COVID-19 delta variant. The migrants have been trying to find refuge in the U.S. by crossing through Central and South America.

In an exclusive interview with ABC's "Good Morning America," Former President Barack Obama touched upon the matter and said that Haitian migrants' plight is heartbreaking. He noted that comprehensive immigration reforms are needed to fix the dysfunctional system. He added that the issue of immigration is challenging, and the idea of having open borders is unsustainable.
