So this is cool:
Yup, simply releasing illegal immigrants who test positive for Covid right into the U.S. is now a thing.
Why am I not surprised by this?
We literally have vaccinated Americans being told to keep their masks over their nose so they don't spread the delta variant, and we're on the verge of another lockdown…
AND THEN ON THE OTHER HAND WE'RE JUST RELEASING COVID-POSITIVE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS INTO OUR COUNTRY.
This is extremely stupid.
The Catholic Charities of The Rio Grande Valley is taking care of these people and housing them in a hotel in La Joya, Texas. That sounds nice and all, until you read things like this:
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.
So that's just gross.
I mean, don't get me wrong, I feel the deepest sympathy for these people. They've come a long way, and the language barrier is probably very difficult when it comes to the rules of having Covid, so it's not really their fault.
But it is someone's fault.
COME ON... WE'RE LETTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO HAVE COVID JUST WALK ON INTO OUR COUNTRY AS IF THE VIRUS DOESN'T EXIST.
The local police were just as surprised about this as you or I.
"We did not know this. No one told the city of La Joya. No one told the police department that these people were here. And no one told us that these people were possibly ill," La Joya Sgt. Manuel Casas told reporters at a July 27 press conference.
When an officer approached one of these migrant families he was told that they had been taken into custody by Border Patrol agents days earlier, but were then released since they tested positive for Covid.
And that hotel I told you about earlier—the one which has been rented out by the Catholic charity…
"The information we have is that everybody that is staying in that hotel is COVID-19 positive."
Officers also later learned that the illegal immigrants being detained by Border Patrol were given over to the nonprofit to be placed in hotels in the La Joya and McAllen, Texas, areas.
So yeah, there's more than just one of these hotels! That's great!
And now that the city of La Joya is aware of this Covid hotel, they've got a security guard standing outside to make sure nobody leaves.
Sounds like a great place to stay!
Well this is all just dumb, and I guess now I can tell how serious our leaders are actually taking the Covid crisis.
And by that I mean it's a complete joke.
