While the Democrats continue to chastise unvaccinated Americans, pushing for laws that would force vaccinations or regular testing and mask-wearing, apparently there is no such concern about illegal immigrants crossing our borders.
Reportedly, COVID-positive illegal immigrants are being passed on to a Catholic charity and housed in a hotel in the city of La Joya Texas, without the knowledge of its residents.
**NEW**: After an incident at a Whataburger, police in La Joya, TX say they’ve learned illegal immigrants who test positive for COVID-19 are being released from federal custody to a local Catholic charity in the RGV which then places them in local hotels without notice. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/cOx4yR5Wiw

According to Fox News:
The immigrants were handed over to the Catholic Charities of The Rio Grande Valley, which arranged for their stay in a La Joya, Texas, hotel that it had rented out entirely, La Joya police officials said.
The situation came to light on July 26, after a concerned citizen reported to a police officer that she saw members of a family who were coughing and sneezing without covering their mouths at a Whataburger location, and they weren’t wearing masks. Management at the restaurant where the incident was reported said they wanted the family to leave because they were disregarding other people’s health.
The officer went to the family, who told the officer they had been apprehended by Border Patrol agents just days before, but were released because they had COVID-19. The family was being housed at the Texas Inn Hotel, which authorities later learned had been completely booked to house such immigrants.
“The information we have is that everybody that is staying in that hotel is COVID-19 positive,” Casas said.
Yup, a whole hotel full of COVID-positive people, who apparently like to go out and eat at Whataburger.
But if you don’t wear your mask, you’re the problem.
On news: COVID positive illegal aliens are staying in hotels and leaving freely.
Police in La Joya Texas are saying COVID positive illegals are socializing in public without masks.
I see no Fauci outrage. Why is the Biden admin turning a blind eye? They want another shutdown?

Additional information from The Hill:
The LJPD officer approached the family, and they relayed that they had been released by Border Patrol because they were diagnosed with COVID-19.
The family told the officer that they had been living in a hotel paid for by the Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, according to law enforcement.
The charity group has also booked rooms in the hotel for undocumented families, and the officer noted that he saw 20 to 30 people staying in the hotel without masks.
“We want to inform the public about the current situation we have encountered and ask that the citizens of La Joya exercise social distancing measures and that they please use face masks in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 or its variants,” the police department said.
The LJPD has said it will assist Border Patrol in apprehending hundreds of undocumented migrants in the region. According to the police statement, CBP informed the force that the agency surpassed 1 million apprehensions last month.
One million apprehensions last month. How many of them had COVID?
Instead of sending them back or at very least quarantining them, the Biden administration is releasing them into nearby cities to wash their hands off the problem.
So much for their deep concern about the spread of the virus.
Or maybe that’s the idea.
Let the virus spread and blame it on the unvaccinated.
