America’s immigration problems continue to fester under Sleepy Uncle Joe’s watch.
Jack Phillips of the Epoch Times broke down one eye-brow raising development regarding the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’ policy.
CBP released over 100 illegal immigrants into Texas who have tested positive for the China virus since January, according to official reports.
In an interview with Fox News, Felipe Romero, a spokesperson for Brownsville, Texas, revealed that 108 migrants tested positive for the China virus since January 25. According to the official, this represented 6.3% of the total illegal aliens who received rapid tests at Brownville’s bus station.
On Fox, Romero also revealed that the city of Brownsville did not have the power to stop migrants who tested positive for the Wuhan virus from traveling elsewhere in the United States, even though officials gave them advice to comply with federal health guidelines and go into quarantine.
“The City of Brownsville continues to follow all guidelines provided by the CDC and [Department of State Health Services] for COVID-19. The migrants who test positive at the B-Metro facility are advised of quarantine procedures and are asked to socially distance,” Romero also said when he went on Noticias Telemundo Investiga.
“There are several NGOs providing resources to a positive case,” he said to the outlet. “For example, organizations help with quarantine either in a shelter or at a hotel. Since the City started testing the migrants on January 25, there has been 6.3 percent of positive cases. The Cameron County positivity rate is 13.8%.”
Several illegal aliens went on Noticias Telemundo Investiga to disclose that they tested positive for the Wuhan virus after undergoing a rapid test in Brownsville. We should remember that Brownsville is located close to the U.S.-Mexico border and will be one of the first cities that could give Americans a clue about what future migration crises could look like.
“Right now we were tested for COVID and they separated about eight of us because we were positive,” Miriam Izaguirre, of Honduras, said during an interview on Noticias Telemundo Investiga on March 2. “We are waiting right now.” According to Phillips, “she was waiting to catch a bus to Houston.”
Some of the illegal aliens who appeared on the network said that they tested positive for the China virus and have plans of going to Maryland, New Jersey, and North Carolina. This behavior is generally in line with what illegal aliens do when they enter the U.S. and proceed to go towards the interior of the country.
Even Democrats are becoming alarmed by the growing Zerg Rush at the border. Rep Henry Cuellar (D-TX), whose 28th district reaches the southern border, said on Fox News that the current influx of migrants could potentially morph into a total crisis.
“It is not a crisis yet, but it will become a crisis,” Cuellar cautioned. “The numbers have been increasing, and as your report just said a few minutes ago, the numbers are just increasing every day. The number of unaccompanied kids, the number of families who are coming in are just increasing every day. In my district, just a couple of days ago, 166 people. And it goes on, and just different numbers are going up. So, it’s not a crisis yet, but it’s going to get there very soon.”
Cuellar also expressed fears about the health impact of bringing in so many migrants.
“You add COVID-19 on top of that. You add a lot of the border communities are not getting the vaccines fast enough. The fact they aren’t letting Mexican legal visa holders come across, but they’re letting undocumented people in, that does cause a concern to me and a lot of my border community leaders down there. So yes, and if you look at the Border Patrol, they’re operating at 25 percent,” Cuellar added.
The fact that Democrats are voicing concerns about the Biden administration’s border policies just shows how out of touch this neoliberal administration is with regards to border policy. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that border security is key for any nation to function.
But when a ruling class is indoctrinated to believe in radical egalitarianism and treats their country like a shopping mall, border security automatically becomes an afterthought, much to the detriment of everyday Americans.
