This is Joe Biden’s America.
40% of illegal aliens being bused to Laredo, Texas have tested positive for Covid-19.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The city of Laredo, Texas, has refused to take in migrants who have been bused in from elsewhere on the border after discovering 40% of them tested positive for the coronavirus, according to two local government officials.
“That was very high,” Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz said in an interview, referring to the infection rate among migrants dropped off by the Border Patrol last week. Laredo health authority, Dr. Victor Trevino, confirmed the numbers.
Concerned that migrants arriving in Laredo would further strain hospital resources, Laredo officials contracted private bus companies to transport migrants arriving from the Rio Grande Valley to larger cities across the state. By not admitting migrants on the McAllen buses, the city is not required to test them for the coronavirus and could forward the families elsewhere. Those who test positive cannot travel and must be quarantined for 10 days, a situation Saenz wanted to evade to avoid migrant overflow.
Last week it was reported that 15% of illegal aliens released from ICE custody in McAllen, Texas were infected with Covid.
The city of McAllen told Fox News that the federal government is releasing “an alarming number of immigrants into McAllen, and that the feds aren’t testing them for COVID.”
Meanwhile Joe Biden is blaming rising Covid cases on unvaccinated Americans.
