Biden must have been taking notes from Obama on the mishandling of the border crisis during his tenure. Only now the stakes are much higher during a global pandemic.
Why would that matter, you ask? Well Biden is releasing illegal immigrants into the US who have tested positive for COVID-19.
The New York Post reports:
“More than 100 illegal immigrants who tested positive for the coronavirus — after their arrival in Texas since late January — have been released by the Border Patrol into the Lone Star State and are free to travel to other parts of the US, according to reports.
Felipe Romero, a spokesman for the border city of Brownsville, told Fox News that they are telling the migrants who tested positive to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to quarantine and maintain social distance, but that Brownsville doesn’t have the authority to stop them from traveling to the rest of the country.
He said the 108 positives account for 6.3 percent of the total migrants who received rapid tests at the city’s main bus terminal, a program that began on Jan. 25.
Some of the migrants described to Noticias Telemundo Investiga how they were tested at the border and then allowed to hit the streets despite a positive result for the coronavirus.”
So while Governor Abbott in Texas is drawing anger and condemnation for finally opening Texas, the Biden administration is opening the floodgates on the border to anyone who can climb a fence, including those infected with the disease the liberal media has been touting as the new Black Plague.
The Post continues:
“The immigrants said they didn’t receive any documentation that they had tested positive. They were simply informed that they had.
Others said after the test they were directed to another waiting area than the others, but their movements were not restricted.
A Border Patrol spokesperson told the newspaper that migrants receive an initial inspection for symptoms but that only people with suspected cases are sent to local health authorities for “proper testing, diagnosis and treatment.”
President Biden has been reversing many of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies since entering the White House, and US Customs and Border Protection said in a report last month that the border is experiencing a surge of migrants.”
It only took Biden a month to completely undo the progress that Trump made on border security. And it’s only going to get worse from here. Let us know in the comments what you think should be done about this!
