President Joe Biden said the COVID-19 spike is a pandemic of the “unvaccinated,” echoing a recent media and expert frenzy as the delta variant continues to spread within the U.S. — all while ignoring another obvious contributor to the pandemic.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) even decided fully-vaccinated people should mask again in areas with “high transmission,” all while the administration continues doing nothing to stop migrants infected with COVID-19 from pouring into the U.S. amid a historic, ongoing surge at the southern border.

Authorities in La Joya, Texas, found on Tuesday that illegal migrants were spreading COVID-19 throughout the community thanks to pro-immigration charities that were footing the bill for hotel rooms for the illegal immigrants, according to Fox News.

Police were notified of the presence of coronavirus-positive illegal migrants after someone at a local Whataburger flagged down an officer, according to Fox News. The individual told the officer there was a large family of illegal migrants inside the restaurant showing obvious signs of illness, such as sneezing and coughing with no apparent attempt to suppress either.

The officer spoke to the Whataburger manager, who confirmed that he wanted the migrants to leave the restaurant, since people felt uncomfortable due to their illness, Fox News reported.

The officer then approached the group of migrants, who told the officer they had been apprehended by Border Patrol agents and had tested positive for COVID-19 while in their custody, Fox News reported. However, the migrants told the officer that they were released from Border Patrol custody just a few days later, and were now staying in a local Texas Inn & Suites, Fox News reported.

After hearing the illegal immigrants’ side of the story, the officer paid the Texas Inn & Suites hotel a visit, where the hotel manager told the officer that the entire hotel had been rented out by the Catholic Charities of The Rio Grande Valley specifically for housing COVID-19 positive illegal immigrants, according to Fox News.

“Based on what was told to us, that the hotel in totality has already been rented out. The information we have is that everyone that is staying in that hotel is COVID-19 positive because it’s being rented out for them,” Casas stated, according to Fox News. The La Joya police department also reportedly found a coordinated effort between Biden’s current immigration regime and pro-immigration charities to release COVID-19 positive illegal immigrants into border communities like La Joya.

Casas chided immigration authorities and other involved parties for not notifying the La Joya police department. “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,” Casas said, Fox News reported.

Even though illegal immigrants have a relatively low likelihood of testing positive for COVID-19, those that do test positive are being released into communities rather than being treated or put in quarantine, according to American Greatness.

Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy took aim at the Democrats’ focus on mandating masks for vaccinated individuals, especially for members of Congress, their staffers and guests on the House side of the Capitol building.

“We have a crisis at our border and we are playing footsie with mask mandates in the people’s house,” Roy asserted. “It’s absolutely absurd what this body is doing, the people’s house. It’s an embarrassment, a mockery, and the American people are fed up. They want to go back to life. They want to go back to business. They want to go back to school without their children being forced to wear masks, to be put in the corner, to have mental health issues.”

“We have thousands of people pouring across our border and Democrats don’t do a darn thing about it, heavily infected with covid,” Roy went on to say. “This sham of an institution is doing nothing for the American people, nothing for the betterment of the people that send their representatives here… And we have people infected with covid coming through our southern border into Texas and you all put masks, masks up front here, here on the people’s house?”

Roy also cited a Tuesday Axios report that found 50,000 illegal migrants have been released in the U.S. without court dates, and only 13% of those who have received court dates have shown up to their hearings.

The Biden administration’s illegal immigration leniency has extended to COVID-19 diagnosis and control, even when migrants would seem to pose a threat to public health.
