Not all migrants flocking into the United States at the border are being tested for the CCP Virus (coronavirus) under President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) orders.
Breitbart News had the information confirmed by a representative from the DHS after asking whether President Biden was in support of mandatory CCP Virus testing at the border.
“As Customs and Border Protection always has, it adjusts resources as needed to meet the demand at the border and regularly screens individuals for signs of health issues when they are encountered, including COVID-19,” the representative told Breitbart News. “Anyone who shows signs of illness receives the appropriate medical treatment.”
So, unless the person is visibly ill from the virus, they may unsuspectedly pass the virus to Americans.
DHS officials have said that those migrants who are enrolled in the now-defunct Remain in Mexico program and who will be set free in the United States in a few weeks will be required to test for the virus. Breitbart News has reviewed internal communications, however and found no mention of this.
“Individuals processed through this program will be tested for COVID-19 [CCP Virus] before entering the United States,” the administration confirmed.
There are 25,600 migrants in the Remain in Mexico program to be integrated into communities in Brownsville and El Paso, Texas, and San Diego, California.
Biden has ignored the program’s effectiveness in drastically cutting asylum fraud under the Trump administration, and ended it, reported Breitbart.
Since the program was initiated, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University (TRAC,) almost 85% of asylum cases by Central Americans didn’t meet asylum criteria. This amounts to 70,000 migrants turned back since the program was created. In addition, there were 31,000 more who returned to their native countries of their own volition after realizing their claims to come to the United States were invalid, according to TRAC data.
President Joe Biden signed an executive order the day after the inauguration to require foreign travelers coming to the United States to prove a negative test to the virus before entry, and quarantine themselves for several days after arrival.
These requirements are more stringent than those at the border allowing immigrants to enter.
Last week White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated that the U.S.-Mexico border was “not open” during an exchange with Breitbart News. This was despite 2,000 border crossers that had entered the United States in the first 10 days of February, with tens of thousands more expected to flood in during the coming months.
