Democrats and the Mainstream Media refuse to speak about this.
But the truth remains: COVID cases are spreading because the Biden administration is allowing illegal immigrants to roam free in the country without ensuring they are negative for the coronavirus.
By the tens of thousands, Border officials are transplanting COVID-positive illegals to Republican-led states in an effort to give the false appearance that cases are on the rise. This is nothing be a rouse from the Biden administration and the Democrat Party to demonize Republicans and conservative Americans who remain vaccine hesitant.
But that all stops now.
Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said on Tuesday that migrants coming from the U.S.-Mexico border are partially responsible for rising COVID-19 cases in some parts of the nation.
Reynolds made her comments during a press conference as her spokesman, Pat Garrett, shared a Fox News report claiming 135 detainees in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas tested positive for COVID-19 in the first two weeks of July. The report asserted that there has been a 900% increase in confirmed cases in the past 14 months.
“Part of the problem is the southern border is open and we’ve got 88 countries that are coming across the border and they don’t have vaccines, so none of them are vaccinated, and they’re getting dispersed throughout the country,” Reynolds told reporters.
In June, Reynolds announced that up to 30 state troopers would go to the U.S.-Mexico border for an indefinite time period. Numerous other Republican-led states, including Florida and Ohio, have sent personnel to aid federal agents handling the influx of migrants at the southern border.
As cases of the coronavirus have risen in recent weeks, the Iowa governor noted her state fell short of her goal to have 75% of adults vaccinated by June. So far, 49% of Iowa residents have been fully vaccinated, and 65% of adults have received at least one shot, according to the state’s COVID-19 dashboard.
The number of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 in the state have nearly doubled in the past month, with 106 patients reported on July 28.
The Biden administration has faced bipartisan backlash as unprecedented numbers of migrants continue to flood the southern border. In June, agents encountered roughly 190,000 attempted illegal crossings, a 21-year high after previous months shattered records.
