Over 100 illegal aliens released by the Border Patrol have tested positive for COVID-19 in Texas.
Fox News reports 108 individuals that have arrived illegally tested positive since testing began on January 25 at a Brownsville, Texas, bus station.
The story adds that some of those who tested positive did not quarantine but continued to travel.
NBC News reported on one individual who tested positive but was going to travel to North Carolina anyway.
Eva Orellana, 29, who is from Honduras and who tested positive, said she was going to take the bus to North Carolina with her 3-year-old daughter. “On the way, we were wearing a mask all the time, gel, washing our hands,” she said. “Really, I don’t feel anything.

Biden campaigned on seeking ways to give amnesty to illegal aliens and migrants are responding to the incentive by seeking ways to enter the U.S. anyway they can.
The surge at the southern border represents a risk to those that take the dangerous journey across Mexico and a health risk to U.S. citizens from COVID-19 positive illegal aliens.
