Former President Trump warned about this. Conservatives have been saying this for months, since before the election. Now it’s come to pass. Along with other issues involving the Biden administration’s irresponsible border security policies, now comes a development that threatens to derail the fight against the virus and the reopening of America. Incoming illegals are spreading disease.

FNC: “More than 100 illegal immigrants released by the Border Patrol into Texas since late January have tested positive for the coronavirus following their arrival, officials in a city on the U.S.-Mexico border tell Fox News. Felipe Romero, a spokesperson for Brownsville, said Wednesday that the 108 positives represent 6.3% of the number of total migrants who have been rapid-tested at the city’s main bus station, where they are being released by the Border Patrol. Rapid testing of the individuals began there on Jan. 25. He added that Brownsville does not have the authority to prevent those who test positive from traveling elsewhere in the U.S. — and are advising them to quarantine, follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and socially distance.”

One Illegal immigrant, “On the way, we were wearing a mask all the time, gel, washing our hands,” said Eva Orellana, a 29-year-old from Honduras who came to the U.S. with her 3-year-old daughter. She still got the virus.

Another, Miriam Izaguirre, a 35-year-old from Honduras, “Right now we were tested for Covid and they separated about eight of us because we were positive. We are waiting right now.” And what of those who got across the border undetected because of lax Biden policies?

In related news, illegal immigrants know the welcome carpet is out. FNC: Migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border on Tuesday were photographed wearing T-shirts in support of President Biden at the San Ysidro crossing port in Tijuana, Baja California state. One apparent migrant held up a poster that read, “Biden, please let us in!”

Do you believe Dr. Fauci when he says another COVID surge is on the way?

From Chihuahua to Central America the word is out: The Americans are suckers again. Gone is Trump and his wall. Instead there is Biden and his wide open door policy. Come one, come all, and damn the consequences.
