MAYORKAS: At Least 1 in 5 Illegals Showing Up Sick at the Border

'"We do not know---I do not know, I should say, if I may be perfectly accurate---I do not know whether anyone was sick with COVID....'

On Monday Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that about 20% of illegal immigrants arriving at the border in recent months have had illnesses—many of them presumed to be the deadly coronavirus, the New York Post reported.

Only days ago Mayorkas finally admitted that the many thousands of Haitian immigrants who lived under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, were never tested for the coronavirus, despite the federal government’s apparent concern.

“We did not test that population of individuals,” Mayorkas told reporters.

“We do not know—I do not know, I should say, if I may be perfectly accurate—I do not know whether anyone was sick with COVID,” he continued. “We certainly had some individuals get sick, not specifically with COVID, to my knowledge, and we addressed their illnesses.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki echoed Mayorkas’s words, suggesting that the illegal immigrants did not need to be tested because they were “not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time.”

Despite guarantees that the illegal immigrants would be removed eventually, it now appears that thousands of illegals are here to stay.

Mayorkas himself has admitted that over 12,000 have been released into the United States.

“We have enforcement guideline in place that provide the individuals who are recent border-crossers who do not show up for their hearings are enforcement priorities and will be removed,” he told Fox News.

Nonetheless, Mayorkas suggested that former President Donald Trump‘s border wall is not part of a solution to the immigration crisis.

“We do not agree with the building of the wall,” Mayorkas replied. “The law provides that individuals can make a claim for humanitarian relief,” he continued. “That is actually one of our proudest traditions.”

As Mayorkas does nothing, it appears that thousands more Haitian migrants are crossing Central America and Mexico on their way to the United states.
