COVID-19 & Illegal Immigrants: It Never Was About Health

Perhaps the single best piece of evidence that media and government officials DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANYONE’S HEALTH? The way they’re handling illegal immigrants who have COVID-19.

Three more Border Patrol Agents working at the Eagle Pass, Texas, processing center tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend, according to a source working under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The agents were assigned to process migrants apprehended in the Del Rio Sector in a soft-sided structure that is currently holding double its rated capacity.

The total number of Border Patrol agents, according to the source, reached six since Thursday. In addition, at least one Texas Army National Guard soldier working in Eagle Pass also tested positive for the virus. The source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, says the facility is rated at 300 migrants due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The facility is currently holding more than 1,000 migrants.

Three northern border agents detailed to Eagle Pass to assist with the current migrant surge tested positive after spending less than one week at the processing center, Breitbart Texas reported on Thursday. The source now reports the total stands at six and is expected to continue to rise.

“This is a nightmare. We have no more room for anyone else in the facility,” the source told Breitbart. “We cannot process them fast enough and when we are done, we have no place to take them except to put them out on the street.”

Several of the Border Patrol Agents who tested positive for the virus had been fully vaccinated, the source reported. It is unknown if the agents were exposed to the Delta variant of the virus. According to the Border Patrol in Del Rio, nearly 1,000 migrants are being apprehended daily in the West Texas region covered by the sector. [Breitbart News 8/1/21]

Legal citizens of the United States are told to wear masks — even in their homes — and to mask up their children. The entire small business economy was shut down for a year and will soon be shut down again. The presence of a virus with a 99 percent survival rate, at least outside of nursing homes, is treated as the equivalent of Armageddon — provided you are not an illegal immigrant.

It’s all the proof you need that this is not about health, and it never was about health. Your governors, your Preisdent, your news networks, your rock stars, your movie and television stars — none of them care about your health. They only care about power. Specifically, political power, because Government is their God and politics is the means through which they acquire, keep and hold both money and influence. The belief (undoubtedly true) is that most immigrants flooding into the country will vote Democrat, especially once they’re hooked on the trillions and trillions of dollars in ever-expanding freebies now being passed by the present Congress.

It’s as simple as that. If you don’t agree, then what’s YOUR explanation for why absolutely nothing is done to stop the spread of COVID-19 by illegal immigrants, while the rest of us are subject to utterly useless and pointless, anti-scientific, anti-common sense and entirely arbitrary, goalpost-moving, partisan-based edicts?
