Texas Crisis Grows A Border City in Danger with COVID-19 Outbreak at Migrant Shelter-ss-Featured

A border city in Texas warned that a COVID outbreak has overrun a migrant shelter in an area, and it could cause an even bigger problem.

Democrat Texas Sen. Judith Zaffirini has revealed that they had sent 172 immigrants into quarantine at a migrant center in Laredo after they all tested positive for COVID-19.

Furthermore, per Laredo Head Director Richard Chamberlain, 336 migrants tested positive for the deadly virus. These migrants stay at Holding Institute as well as at a Catholic Charities shelter as of Sunday. Hondurans make up most of the positive migrant cases of COVID-19.

According to Laredo Fire Chief Guillermo Heard, the migrants coming from Rio Grande Valley undergo screening and tests. Authorities also offer them vaccines at the shelter they go to. From there, officials transfer them to the Laredo airport or the city’s bust terminal.

Mayor Pete Saenz already asked Troy Miller, the acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, to suspend the transfers of migrants from the Rio Grande Valley immediately. Saez argued that the area is underprepared without any help from the federal government.

According to data released by the CBP, April 2021 became the second consecutive month in which agents have encountered over 170,000 illegal aliens.
