The border crisis has sort of disappeared from the mainstream media, so it’s down to reporters like Townhall’s Julio Rosas and Fox LA’s Bill Melugin, who notes that more than 15,000 migrants were apprehended by the Border Patrol in the Rio Grande Valley sector in just one week.
Incredible numbers coming out of the Rio Grande Valley as the administration touts “extreme progress” and continues to say the border is “closed”.

Fox News’ Griff Jenkins says that the number of COVID-positive migrants who’ve been detained has increased 900 percent in the past 14 months, with the Rio Grande Valley accounting for 60 percent of confirmed cases. It’s no coincidence that when Vice President Kamala Harris finally paid a visit to the “border,” she was nowhere near the Rio Grande Valley.
BREAKING: FOX News has confirmed that the number of Covid-positive detainees in @CBPRGV sector has increased 900% vs the previous 14 months… 135 positive detainees IN JUST THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF JULY… RGV accounts for 60% of confirmed cases in entire USBP @USBPChiefRGV

Jenkins and Adam Shaw report:
The number of detainees who tested positive for COVID-19 in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector alone has increased by 900%, according to information obtained by Fox News.
There were 135 detainees who tested positive in the first two weeks of July alone, marking a 900% increase in confirmed positive cases compared to the previous 14 months.
The RGV sector is one of the main destinations for migrants crossing the border, seeing more than 2000 apprehensions each day and accounting for 60% of confirmed positive detainees in the U.S. Border Patrol custody.
This information was obtained exclusively from a slide distributed to RGV Border Patrol managers to share with agents to help them protect themselves from the virus.
They are being vaccinated before being relocated, right?
Good thing they’re shipping them all over the country

Well over a million unauthorized foreign nationals, many with active cases of Covid, have been allowed by the current regime to enter the USA, be housed by @CBPRGV, and then distributed across our country into our communities.

And we are wondering why cases are surging

Remember back in March when the CDC gave the OK for the Biden-Harris administration to fill shelters housing migrant children to 100 percent and beyond, despite the recommendation to keep them no more than half-full to slow the spread of the coronavirus?
@POTUS get control of the border you moron!!!

The Biden variant is killing people

How do these outbreaks correlate to the towns/cities that Biden is having the military fly unchecked illegals?

Great. Now we know which political party is responsible for spreading misinformation.
It’s a double whammy! Texas Democrats super-spreader event and the ongoing southern border crisis. Shame.

A lot of them will be future Texas Democrats.
But, lets focus on all the naughty unvaxed Americans.

Follow them to their final destinations, you see an uptick in positive tests in these areas. It’s just common sense.
— Carcharias él Rey (@bay_snark) July 20, 2021
Sure just put them on a plane or bus and send them throughout the US. The real super spreader event. Great policy Biden.
— Paul-B (@pfb0417) July 20, 2021
Do the illegal aliens Biden is distributing throughout the country get vaccinated first? I’ve seen nothing about this.
— Earl Gray (@NoCream_1Sugar) July 20, 2021
We honestly don’t know what sort of vaccines these migrants are getting.
