Exclusive internal emails from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) were reviewed by Breitbart News.
The documents show that the organization continues to knowingly release border crossers and illegal immigrants who have tested positive for COVID into the country.
According to Breitbart News, more than a year after Biden’s DHS was first charged with knowingly releasing border crossers and illegal aliens who tested positive for COVID into the interior of the United States as part of its extensive catch and release program, the agency is still being accused of doing so.
According to internal emails between Border Patrol (BP) officials, border crossers and illegal immigrants have recently been tested for the Chinese coronavirus and then released into Arizona after testing positive.
Five female border crossers, at least some of whom tested positive for COVID on July 26, were taken by bus from DHS custody to the Monte Vista Church, according to an email:
Please ensure that you will take all of the required precautions, including wearing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and any other personal protective equipment (PPE) that you think essential. [Emphasis added]
This bus will be transported directly to the NGO and will not be stopping at PHO ERO, they will already be served by Yuma BP due to being COVID+. [Emphasis added]
According to sources close to Breitbart News, Biden’s DHS actually refrains from deporting border crossers and undocumented immigrants who test positive for the coronavirus.
In one of those instances, a husband and wife had crossed the border into the United States from Mexico and were placed in DHS custody. The husband did not test positive for the coronavirus, but the wife did. The COVID-positive wife was consequently permitted to remain in the country while her COVID-negative husband was deported, despite the fact that both were eligible for Title 42 removal.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) provided a statement to Breitbart News stating that the organization “provides migrants with PPE from the moment they are taken into custody, and migrants are required to keep masks on at all times.
The spokesperson continued:
If anyone exhibits signs of illness in CBP custody, they are referred to local health systems for appropriate testing, diagnosis, and treatment. CBP takes its responsibility to prevent the spread of communicable diseases very seriously. We value our partners in local communities whose work is critical to moving individuals safely out of CBP/USBP custody and through the appropriate immigration pathway.
The revelation comes after Biden and his top DHS officials fended off questions last year about the agency’s seemingly common practice of releasing COVID-positive border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities.
In August of last year, Former Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan estimated that in Biden’s first six months as president, his DHS had potentially released some 40,000 COVID-positive border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior.
