DHS Secretary Comes Clean, Says Migrants Were Released Into U.S. Without Being Tested For COVID

Illegal immigrants who were apprehended by immigration authorities were not tested for the coronavirus before they were released into the United States.

This, folks, should let you know what liberals really think of the coronavirus. If they were really authentic about caring for people’s lives, if this illness were as awful as they claim it is, why are they not testing these folks?

During a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Wednesday about the crisis at the U.S. border, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted that illegal immigrants apprehended and subsequently released into the United States did not receive COVID-19 tests, Townhall reported.

Mayorkas admitted to the problem after Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) questioned him about an NBC News article that reported asylum-seekers who tested positive for COVID-19 were released in Brownsville, Texas. The immigrants took the tests after being released by Border Patrol.

“The city of Brownsville administers these rapid tests at the bus station, after migrant families are released by the Border Patrol. A spokesperson for Brownsville confirmed that, since they began doing these tests Jan. 25, 108 migrants have tested positive for Covid-19, which is 6.3 percent of those who took the test,” the outlet reported.

The individuals who ended up testing positive for the virus were still allowed to get on buses and go other places in the country. Let that sink in for a bit.

COVID positive illegal immigrants were given permission to travel wherever they wanted. Meanwhile, Democratic governors across America are forbidding us from eating inside restaurants.

Such hypocrisy.
