Migrant Crisis: No COVID Test Needed, Come On In To The US!

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced Monday that the “rate of illness” among illegal immigrants who have arrived at the US-Mexico border in recent months is “approximately 20 percent” — days after confirming that thousands of Haitian migrants who set up a temporary encampment under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas were not tested for COVID-19.

“When one is speaking of 7,000 or 7,500 people encountered at the border every day, if one takes a look at that system, it is not built for that in a COVID environment where isolation is required,” Mayorkas announced throughout his comments at the Immigration Law and Policy Conference.

Mayorkas did not define whether the “illness” he was referring to was COVID-19, yet he further stated that he did not expect “the tragic rise of the Delta variant” over recent months.

“We took a step back because of that,” he continued. “I did not expect to be in late September where we are.”
