As the Biden administration continues to tell Americans to get vaccinated and wear masks, they are still completely ignoring the crisis at the southern border.
How are people supposed to take them seriously as potentially unvaccinated people stream across the border?
In one Texas border town, it has been discovered that 40 percent of the illegals released there have tested positive for COVID.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Forty percent of migrants released in Texas border city test positive for COVID-19, officials say
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.
The 40% infection rate is the highest known positivity rate along the U.S.-Mexico border. Last week, McAllen, Texas, reported a 15% positivity rate among migrants released from custody.
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.
CNN recently said there was no evidence that illegal immigrants have COVID.
President Biden has a border crisis on his hands – no doubt.

Wrong again, CNN.
40% of migrants released in Texas border city test positive for COVID-19, officials say
Laredo officials are paying up to $10k daily to bus migrant families to other Texas cities because it cannot handle the influx of people being bused in from McAllen https://t.co/kTKnvtMmsd

Does CNN ever tire of looking like idiots?
