It was inevitable, I suppose. Many of us tried to warn that it would happen. Several asylum seekers coming through Brownsville Texas have tested positive for COVID-19 upon entry into the country. They are headed to other states as far away as the Carolinas.
According to Gateway Pundit:
The city of Brownsville administers these rapid tests at the bus station, after migrant families are released by the Border Patrol. A spokesperson for Brownsville confirmed that, since they began doing these tests Jan. 25, 108 migrants have tested positive for COVID-19, which is 6.3 percent of those who took the test.
6.3 percent, folks. So, if 13,000 are given asylum, as has been discussed in earlier news articles, we’re talking about 780 positive COVID cases. And if they’re all traveling from one county to another, one state to another, then those 780 cases double. And triple. And so on.
I wouldn’t wish COVID-19 on anyone. I had a rough case of it a couple months back and know how bad it can be. I don’t want to see these migrants ill, and I certainly don’t want to see any of them traveling into our country’s interior, spreading it as they go along.
We know that Biden is keen on creating open border policy. We’ve already seen some of the results of that with the horrific SUV fatalities in California. When you open the floodgates, the people on the other side get flooded out. And, I suspect, that’s what we’re about to experience, at least in the border states. I expect to see an increase of COVID-19 cases, for sure. And (sadly) human trafficking. And drugs. And crime. And so on.
Texas isn’t the only border state gearing up for this. In New Mexico, Rep. Yvette Herrell (Rep) is seeking answers from the new Secretary of Homeland Security regarding reports of undocumented immigrants who are entering her state without COVID-19 testing or adequate criminal/background checks. She believes they pose a “clear and present danger” to the citizens she represents.
Here’s what she had to say:
“According to numerous media reports, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is releasing thousands of aliens into the United States without COVID-19 tests where Title 42 has been abrogated for what appear to be political reasons.”
She’s particular worried about the catch and release program.
I have to agree. She’s also concerned about the spread of COVID, which had been particularly deadly in New Mexico.
“We’ve been in lockdown for over nine months,” Herrell said. “Our schools are not open, we have an incredible high rate now of teen suicide, we’ve had an incredible number of people with coronavirus and other illnesses sadly being alone in hospitals or in senior living facilities, we’ve had many people who were not able to do basic medical preventative procedures because of COVID, and we’ve had over 300 companies shut their doors for good.”
When you’ve got an open door policy—thanks, Joe!—these things are to be expected, I suppose.
