One of the latest reports from Fox News brought forth that the number of illegals testing positive for COVID-19 have skyrocketed in the Rio Grande Valley Sector in Texas over 900% increase from the previous 14 months.
“This information was obtained exclusively from a slide distributed to RGV Border Patrol managers to share with agents to help them protect themselves from the virus,” Fox News reported. Over one hundred and twenty-five detainees tested positive in the area.
Typically, 2,000 illegal immigrants are caught every day in the RVG sector. “Currently, the majority of those encountered are turned back due to Title 42 public health protections put in place during the Trump administration,” Fox News noted. Title 42 allows the Biden administration to expel apprehended illegal immigrants because of COVID-19 concerns.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who introduced the SHIELD Act, which promises to codify Title 42. “This is lunacy,” said Cruz. “It is lawless and the only reason Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are doing it is because they are captive to the extreme radical left of their party.”
“You know the leading paper in Washington (The Washington Post) has as its slogan ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness,’” Cruz began. “Joe and Kamala want darkness from the disaster that they have created. And not only that, they’re proposing to make it worse. Joe Biden is now talking about ending Title 42.”
“Title 42 is the tool that has allowed us to prevent people with COVID from being released into this country,” Cruz explained. “We’re in a pandemic; Joe Biden likes to talk about what a priority he puts on the pandemic. Understand this: if the Biden administration ends Title 42, they will be releasing illegal immigrants in your community who are COVID-positive.”
“We’re seeing COVID positivity rates rise in South Texas; we’re seeing COVID positivity rising in Laredo; we’re seeing COVID positivity rising in San Antonio,” Cruz noted. “Just yesterday I spoke with the mayor of Uvalde, Texas, who said as a result of the illegal immigrants being released in Uvalde, they’re seeing COVID positivity spiking up and Biden want to release even more COVID positive illegal immigrants.”
‘This is lunacy,” he stated. “It is lawless and the only reason Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are doing it is because they are captive to the extreme radical left of their party. Everyone else who believes in common sense ought to say, enough is enough, and let’s not make the pandemic worse by making this crisis at the border even worse than it already is.”
