I wish we’d had this new information from the NEW YORK POST in time for yesterday's update on the flood of COVID-infected “noncitizens” –- illegals –- at the Texas border. (That story: the DOJ sued and obtained a temporary injunction against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s order that curbed the federal government’s transportation of migrants from the border into Texas and beyond.) But here it is.

https://nypost.com/2021/08/04/thousands-of-covid-positive-migrants-pass-through-texas-border/

Nearly 7,000 immigrants who tested positive for COVID-19 --- out of the ones who WERE tested --- have passed through McAllen, Texas, including more than 1,500 in just the past seven days.

It wasn’t a big announcement, just one that was folded into a statement from the City of McAllen, population 140,000, announcing the construction of emergency shelters to help them cope with the overwhelming numbers of immigrants. On Monday, the buses Gov. Abbott is trying to stop were running constantly, dropping off passengers at a downtown Catholic charity every 30 minutes throughout the day. McAllen has declared a state of disaster.

According to this story, July marked the highest number of illegal immigrants apprehended at the US-Mexico border in more than 20 years.

On Wednesday afternoon, a crash occurred about 50 miles north of McAllen on a remote Texas highway when a van carrying 25 people (!) --- but designed to carry no more than 15 --- turned over on a curve, killing 11 people and injuring at least a dozen others.

Migrants continue to pour in, as Gov. Abbot has been ordered not to interfere, at least for now. After the temporary halt to his order, a spokesperson for his office said, “The governor’s Executive Order attempts to prevent the Biden administration from spreading COVID-19 into Texas and protect the health and safety of Texans.” The next hearing is scheduled for August 13.

Abbott’s spokesperson also said this: “The Biden administration has knowingly --- and willingly --- released COVID-19 positive migrants into Texas communities, risking the potential exposure and infection of Texas residents.”

And this brings us to what Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Wednesday to President Biden, which is absolutely what needed to be said. Watch and learn; this is EXACTLY the way all Republicans need to fight back against the politics-driven idiocy being inflicted on our country right now by those in power. It makes no sense to talk about lockdowns when you’re allowing COVID-infected “noncitizens” to stream into the country as Biden is.

Biden had admonished Govs. DeSantis and Abbott for not doing “the right thing” to fight COVID. “Look, we need leadership from everyone,” he said. “If some governors aren’t willing to do the right thing to beat this pandemic, they should allow businesses and universities who want to do the right thing to be able to do it.” Rational people are more at risk from busting a gut laughing at lines like this from Biden than they are from the coronavirus. I wonder how many infected people crossed into America at our southern border while Biden was giving his little speech.

DeSantis’ stand-up-and-cheer response to President Biden: “Why don’t you do your job? Why don’t you get this border secure? And until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID from you, thank you.”

DeSantis also appeared briefly on THE INGRAHAM ANGLE with Laura Ingraham Wednesday to talk about personal decisions regarding COVID, particularly regarding parents on issues that affect their kids, such as mask-wearing in school. He pointed out that last year, school districts in Florida that didn’t institute compulsory mask-wearing had lower rates of infection than those that did.

    I would have never dreamed I would see the shape that the United States of America is in right now!! I have no words!!
    Democrats and Republicans used to desire to work with one another for the good of the people who voted for them! They used to respect the people’s vote! They both used to respect the position they had and be honored to serve the United States!

    I do not know the Democratic Party! They are so far left that I do not recognize them anymore! It is like a foreign dictatorship that we heard of in other countries!! Democrats are truly unbelievable!!
    Thank you for sharing the truth and upholding our constitution!! It is people like you that are my voice!! You give me hope! Like God’s Word tells us, “Press towards the mark…” Please continue to have a voice for me!! God bless you and give you endurance!
    It is not a saying any longer, it is a request! May God Bless our America??? May He, will He??

    The Biden team has shut the border with Canada, and they have much better reasons to close the border with Mexico.

    Because they reject the rule of law, they will leave the southern border open. Never mind oaths of office....

    They are welcome to come over the boarder, but only if they are all put on trains straight to DC and bused to the whitehouse. There are enough rooms and outside lawn space to do a camp out. Then we'll see if Basement Biden ever shows his face again!

    Biden should be impeached for dereliction of duty in endangering the health of US residents for allowing and encouraging Covid infected people to cross US southern border illegally. Where is Bush?? Painting like Hunter Biden?

    DeSantis made so much “sense” when he went public and let OBiden know he was going to stand in his way if he tried to make children in his State wear masks!
    He is also the 1st politician, I have heard call out this Covid Spike for what it is…..caused by the thousands, upon thousands of illegals pouring across our Southern Border thanks to a totally inept Democratic President/Dementia Patient.
    I totally agreed with Ron DeSantis, too, when he said he found it ridiculous that The Criminal, Communist Democrat Party was insisting that Americans carry medical papers with them to eat in a restaurant (In New York) and yet Democrats feel it is discriminatory to have, to have a photo ID to vote!”
    (More absolutely ridiculous “thinking” or “not thinking” by the Communist Left, in my opinion!)

    DeSantis is right, President Biden is bringing down America. Border should never been wide open with us paying all the bills. Thanks with all you do.

    How about if Governor Abbot just hires buses and sends all those COVID positive ILLEGALS on to Washington, DC!

    A nurse and a doctor at our local hospital said the hospital in a small NE Florida town is full of "sick illegals who were shipped here by the military." That was the explanation a patient who had to be held in the ER for 18 hours was told. An RN in Ocala, Florida said it is the same in the hospital there. FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) confirmed to our of our deputies that the feds have shipped illegals to Georgia and Tennessee, but not to Florida. I can't help but wonder if the reason Florida's COVID numbers are going up is due to illegals with COVID sent here. I've also heard illegals get preference over local patients due to the money paid to hospitals by the feds for taking care of them. I have proof of none of these these things I've been told, but I am concerned given the factual shipping of thousands of illegals all over this country, mostly to small towns. Thanks for your very informative news.

    MIKE, did anyone ever give any thought to the possibility (sic. probability) that many of these infected aliens, oops, --- I mean immigrants, are being bussed in secret to red states in order to make the red leaders of those states look bad. After all, we all see the rampant fraud and corruption from the last election. So that means that they have to find other (fraudulent) methods for victory. They'll get the "alien" vote as well as making it look like red leaders can't handle their states with the virus? I'd truly like to see/hear YOUR opinion on this. But what the heck ITS JUST MY OPINION!

    Please reveal who decides the destination for the transported illegals. This is extremely important--the contractors ( I doubt that seriously) or Biden official.
