It’s officially easier for migrants to enter the United States than legal citizens returning from their lawful travels abroad.
If you’re a law-abiding citizen, you must show a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours or you can’t board a flight into your own country.
And paid out of your pocket by the way.
But migrants who test positive for COVID-19 in ports of entry are allowed to carry on their travels through the country.
I thought we were still going through a pandemic?
What about stopping the spread?
I don’t think letting COVID-positive migrants into the country helps that.
The hypocrisy of this administration is just astonishing beyond belief.
Americans are unemployed, isolated, and fighting to make ends meet but Sleepy Joe’s administration turns their backs on them.

Biden's open borders policy is not just a national security threat – it's a public health risk too.https://t.co/BfMkVN0627

While Americans lose their jobs, their livelihoods and their dignity, the Biden Administration seeks to keep the disease among us. https://t.co/b1Nc2WAjjj

The idea of releasing illegal immigrants who have tested positive for COVID-19 into our country while making American citizens live under draconian lockdown restrictions is ludicrous! https://t.co/9vNstCok9t

#PotusBiden why are you allowing the spread of Coronavirus by illegal immigrants? To me, this is a "High Crime & Misdemeanor" against the people of Brownsville, TX. So you need to be impeached. https://t.co/PPE2aipwdk #FoxNews

This simply shows that the Biden administration doesn’t care about public health.
And they don’t care about the security of hard-working Americans.
They only care about their open-border policy for their own selfish political agenda.
And they don’t care about these asylum seekers either.
Once they’ve served their purpose, Biden’s cronies will toss them aside.
Just like they do the foolish citizens who vote for them in the first place.
Fox News reported on the story:
More than 100 illegal immigrants released by the Border Patrol into Texas since late January have tested positive for the coronavirus following their arrival, officials in a city on the U.S.-Mexico border tell Fox News.
Felipe Romero, a spokesperson for Brownsville, said Wednesday that the 108 positives represent 6.3% of the number of total migrants who have been rapid-tested at the city’s main bus station, where they are being released by the Border Patrol. Rapid testing of the individuals began there on Jan. 25.
He added that Brownsville does not have the authority to prevent those who test positive from traveling elsewhere in the U.S. — and are advising them to quarantine, follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and socially distance.
Sources at the White House told Fox News on Wednesday it is aware of instances where individuals may continue to travel despite testing positive and being told to quarantine — yet the federal guidance remains for them to isolate.
The sources said the coronavirus testing near the border is being handled by state and local governments in conjunction with non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
The city of Brownsville also told Noticias Telemundo Investiga that it is advising migrants who test positive to go to NGOs and nonprofits in the area for help with finding shelter and places they can isolate themselves from others. The local county-wide positivity rate is estimated to be 13.8%.
Migrant families who tested positive and spoke to that news organization at the bus station said they were waiting to travel to places such as Maryland and New Jersey.
“On the way, we were wearing a mask all the time, gel, washing our hands,” Eva Orellana, a 29-year-old from Honduras who came to the U.S. with her 3-year-old daughter, told Noticias Telemundo Investiga.
She added that she was going to take a bus to North Carolina and had purchased tickets.
“Really, I don’t feel anything,” she said.
Miriam Izaguirre, a 35-year-old from Honduras who also tested positive, told Noticias Telemundo Investiga that she planned to travel by bus to Houston.
“Right now we were tested for Covid and they separated about eight of us because we were positive,” she said. “We are waiting right now.”
Migrants also said they were told of their positive test result by station workers, but were not provided any documents noting so, Noticias Telemundo Investiga reports. They simply were told to stand in a different waiting area from other individuals, it added.
A worker at a bus company that operates out of the station told the news organization they cannot ask passengers for proof of coronavirus test results before boarding.
From personal experience, I can tell you it’s more strenuous, time-consuming, and costly for a legal American citizen coming back from abroad.
These hypocrites have zero qualms treating their own citizens like slaves with tyrannical lockdowns and face diaper mandates.
But if you serve a political purpose to them, then they’ll let you slide.
