(AbsoluteNews.com) – The border crisis is still raging out of control more than six months into the Biden administration. The country is also still grappling with the pandemic and the spread of the COVID-19 delta variant. All this is being made worse by the immigration crisis, especially along the border.
On Wednesday, August 4, McAllen, Texas officials said Border Patrol has released more than 7,000 COVID-position immigrants into the city since February. More than 1,500 were released in the last week. The federal government’s decision to force the border town to care for the migrants has led to its own set of problems. City officials said more shelters are being built to handle the “rapidly escalating” number of border crossers staying in McAllen.

Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin said on Twitter that he watched busloads of migrants being dropped off in the city all day. He said hundreds got off the busses and were allowed to roam freely. McAllen officials said the surge began in 2014 and has continued for more than “seven years to the present surge” and it has become a crisis on its own. The officials are now asking Hidalgo County for help. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) widely condemned the Biden admin for allowing the situation to get worse.

There’s been not a peep from President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris about the emergency in McAllen. They seem happy to just continue to ignore the dangerous crisis at the border and put more Americans’ lives at risk.
