In case you’ve forgotten, there is still a crisis happening down at the Southern Border. A Los Angeles Fox News 11 reporter was recently promoted to the national Fox News team. That reporter, Bill Melugin, is presently in the Rio Grande Valley documenting the chaos, and he had this to report:
BREAKING: The number of migrants testing positive for COVID-19 in the Rio Grande Valley has surged 900% in the first two weeks of July.
The sector averages more than 2,000 apprehensions per day, and just had 15,000+ in a single week. @GriffJenkins breaking this story @FoxNews https://t.co/9xTxgrQ1yo

The first two weeks in JULY. Gee… what else was happening nationally the first couple of weeks of this month?
On July 6, 2021, after only reaching less than 70 percent of his self-imposed nationwide vaccination push, President Joe Biden decided that it was time to ramp it up and get everyone in the nation vaccinated, whether they wanted to or not. The term, “Delta variant” began popping up on every news channel chyron and Internet newsfeed. Biden also decided that “doses-to-doors” was a good idea, and began this new campaign in North Carolina’s low-income, minority-rich Mecklenberg County to get er done.
And the AP saw the necessity of spolighting Biden’s “grappling” with the unvaccinated who are causing all this chaos and are the main barrier to eliminating COVID-19 in our nation:
Two weeks after celebrating America’s near “independence” from the coronavirus, President Joe Biden is confronting the worrying reality of rising cases and deaths — and the limitations of his ability to combat the persistent vaccine hesitance responsible for the summer backslide.
Cases of COVID-19 have tripled over the past three weeks, and hospitalizations and deaths are rising among unvaccinated people. While the rates are still sharply down from their January highs, officials are concerned by the reversing trendlines and what they consider needless illness and death. And cases are expected to continue to rise in coming weeks.
So if this is the case: the unvaccinated are the major drivers of this new Delta variant, then why is Biden allowing these border crossers full of COVID to get on American soil? Why is he using government resources to fly them from Texas to other parts of the country? Are these illegal aliens being required to mask up or be vaccinated before they take flight?
I mean, the Texas Democrats were supposedly all fully vaccinated, and we see how well that’s turned out!
In Biden’s troubled mind, there is no correlation between allowing COVID-positive illegals to flock throughout the country, and the causation of the recent surge of COVID cases in the past month. Instead, it’s those unvaccinated people insisting on their individual liberties to not get an experimental vaccine who are the problem. Let’s target them. The brain trust at the CDC, headed by the dim-witted Dr. Rochelle Walensky, is even floating a new phrase and hoping it sticks: “A pandemic of the unvaccinated”.
If I didn't know better, I'd say the current admin. is purposefully blowing open the southern border, letting anything that can walk in, then shipping them to the interior of the country, so they could import more C-19, and the variant, to re-infect everyone, to maintain control.

Different article, but the AP is choosing once again to be the mouthpiece of the Sauron:
The new public expression of frustration comes amid lingering disbelief that tens of millions of Americans continue to refuse to get vaccinated, needlessly extending the pandemic and costing lives, as government health officials emphasize that nearly all serious cases and deaths are now preventable.
Those aliens crossing the border? They’re not the issue, and if you say they are, you’re… racist!
The commenters on Melugin’s post were, strangely, channeling my same thoughts:
I have zero issues with people trying to come here and attain a better life, but timing matters.
Is it possible that maybe… just maybe pandemic like conditions isn't the time for a massive influx of people? That's not xenophobic, racist, etc. It's called common sense. 🤷🏻♂️

It seems as though there is a vested interest in pinning this new variant and the increasing rates of infection in one direction, and one direction only. A cursory Internet search with the phrase “pandemic of the unvaccinated” rendered a slew of news stories from all the major outlets. So, apparently, this latest tool in the propaganda arsenal is in full play.
