Who wouldn’t be pissed about this?
After we have had the economy shut down and had Covid-19 regulations shoved down our throats in the name of ‘ public safety’ for over a year we now have this.
The current administration thinks it is totally cool to let Covid-19 infected illegals just run free.
We can’t have a drink in a bar past 11 in New York, but if you have Covid-19 and have crossed the border illegally then you get a pat on the back apparently.
Texas has every right to sue over this.
I honestly don’t know whether to laugh or to cry at this one. On one hand this is a crime….on the other hand it’s just so ridiculous I can’t help but laugh.
They can’t figure out whether or not we should wear one or two masks, yet they are letting people in here illegally with Covid……LOL
Take a look:
Fox News reported:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Thursday sued the Biden administration for allegedly encouraging the spread of COVID-19 at the border by allowing large numbers of migrants into the U.S., often into overcrowded facilities.
"President Biden’s outright disregard of the public health crisis in Texas by welcoming and encouraging mass gatherings of illegal aliens is hypocritical and dangerous. This reckless policy change stifles the reopening of the Texas economy at a time when businesses need it the most and when our children need to get back to in-person learning as soon as possible," Paxton said in a statement announcing the legal challenge.
The Biden administration has been facing a spike in migrant encounters at the border, particularly in Texas. Shocking images have emerged of overcrowded facilities in places like Donna, Texas, where migrants were pictures packed together side-by-side, often without masks. Texas officials have also protested about instances where COVID-positive migrants were released into the U.S.
An earlier report from Reuters found that:
Two shelter managers told Reuters the U.S. Border Patrol began dropping off families last week at shelters in Laredo and Brownsville along the stretch of border with Mexico’s Tamaulipas state, the busiest region for illegal immigration into the United States.
Sister Norma Pimentel, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, said the Border Patrol has sent around 50 to 80 families to her shelter daily since Jan. 27, rising to 150 families on Wednesday. Most remain only briefly at the shelters before connecting with relatives or friends elsewhere in the United States, she said.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed some migrants were being released into the United States to await immigration hearings, saying some holding facilities were at maximum safe capacity. A CBP source cited COVID-19 and a change in Mexican law among factors that “have forced us to adapt.”
