Border city McAllen, Texas is inundated over a surge in illegal migrants as many are testing positive with COVID-19.
A record number of illegal migrants were released in McAllen last week with over 1,500 positive cases of the virus. Officials declared a local state of disaster.
Washington Examiner reports:
Last week, a record-high 7,000 migrants were released in downtown McAllen, where they were immediately tested for the coronavirus through a city contractor. More than 1,500 people tested positive over the past seven days, according to a city document issued Wednesday, compared to a total of 7,000 confirmed cases over the past five months.

The city is so overwhelmed with illegal migrants that temporary shelters are being constructed.

Illegal migrants released under President Biden’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection are regularly transported to McAllen.
Morning, noon and night this week busloads carrying 50 to 100 migrants — with many very small children — have been dropped off at a corner in downtown McAllen across from the city’s bus depot and CCRGV’s Humanitarian Respite Center, the largest migrant shelter in the Rio Grande Valley.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is making matters worse.
New York Post reports:
Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) renewed the so-called Title 42 protocol Monday, giving federal authorities clearance to expel single adults and certain families at the border in order to prevent the spread of the virus.
Critics commented on social media.

As a record number of illegal migrants, including thousands that are COVID-19 positive, continue to enter the country along the southern border, the health and safety of Americans are at stake under President Biden’s administration.
It’s outrageous Biden is ignoring the crisis at the border, especially with the significant number of COVID-19 infected illegal migrants coming into the U.S.
