The Biden administration claims it’s taking COVID-19 very seriously but behind the scenes, it’s allowing the virus in through the migrants it’s claiming to protect.

According to NBC News, people who tested positive for Coronavirus were being released by Biden’s DHS into the country:

Miriam Izaguirre, a 35-year-old asylum-seeker from Honduras, crossed the Rio Grande at dawn Monday with her young son and turned herself in to the authorities.

A few hours later she was released, and the first thing she did was take a rapid test for Covid-19 at the Brownsville bus station. They told her her test came out positive.

Several of the asylum-seekers who tested positive told Noticias Telemundo Investiga they were planning to leave Brownsville for their destinations; one of them bought a bus ticket for the journey. 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.”

According to Noticias Telemundo Investiga, Brownsville city officials say they don’t have the authority to stop them, but recommended they go to nonprofit organizations to isolate them and keep them quarantined:

In response to Noticias Telemundo Investiga, a spokesperson for the city said in an email that Brownsville does not have the authority to retain these migrants who plan to travel to dozens of cities throughout the country. The city assured that municipal workers recommend to those who test positive to keep quarantine as indicated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The city employees suggest to families they go to nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and nonprofits in the border area who can take them in and isolate them in order to keep quarantine.

At this time, American citizens in various parts of the country can’t open their businesses, attend funerals, or visit their loved ones in the hospital because the fear is that doing so would spread the virus around and infect more people.

Yet, migrants are more than welcome to apparently do this themselves, even after the government catches them entering the country illegally thanks to Biden’s “catch and release” program.

The question you have to ask is whether the Biden administration or the Democrat party, in general, is actually serious about this virus. My guess is “no.” If they were taking the virus seriously, it would have released the lockdowns long ago when it was proven they weren’t working out for anyone.
