Border Crisis: Dem Mayor Forced To Admit The Ugly Truth
Texas Democrat and mayor of McAllen said he 'totally agrees' that illegals are causing a serious health crisis at the border and the government is ignoring it. I was kind of shocked to see CBS covering this story but you know who isn't covering it? Everyone else. CNN, NBC, MSNBC had nothing to say about it. McAllen mayor Javier Villalobos says he 'didn't see it as a problem' before because he claims it was 'under control. The reality is, it was a problem but because it isn't getting coverage by the media, COVID cases had to skyrocket in order for Democrats to see it.
Mireya Villarreal reported that “Across the entire southwest border, 210,000 migrant apprehensions were reported for July, a 21 year high.” She added that this disaster has “caught the attention of conservative leaders across the country.”
Villarreal then played a clip of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis: “You just want to hopscotch across that border? They don't care about Covid. They're letting you straight in.”
Villarreal downplayed the threat of COVID presented by untested illegals but she was thrown through a loop when mayor Villalobos agreed with Republican governors, like Desantis.
JAVIER VILLALOBOS (Mayor, McAllen, Texas): Initially I didn't see it as a problem because it was under control. So I saw no correlation between the increase in covid within our community and the immigrants because they were isolated.
MIREYA VILLARREAL: But?
VILLALOBOS: Now I think there's an issue because now they're going throughout. Positive or nonpositive, they get picked up and they're going out and we have no authority to stop it.
VILLARREAL: So when you hear the governors talking about this being a problem now for the health and safety of the rest of America, am I hearing right, you agree with that?
VILLALOBOS: I totally agree with that.
The problem in McAllen has finally reached a point where, despite the lack of coverage, the health impact Biden's border crisis is having is finally obvious to Democratic leaders. I predict that this is just the beginning of Democrats coming to terms with their mistakes.
The Biden administration is not vaccinating the migrants and for the most part, many of them are not being tested. They are, however, busing them across the nation and likely spreading more variants than an Obama birthday bash.
