Police in South Texas were surprised to discover that illegal immigrants had been put up in hotels after being released from federal custody – and that these immigrants had possibly tested positive for COVID-19.
Fox News reported that the immigrants had been turned over to a Catholic charity after they were released from federal company, and the charity booked them hotel rooms. Local authorities, however, weren’t informed.
“The La Joya Police Department said a patrol officer was waved down Monday by someone concerned about a group that appeared to be sick at a Whataburger fast food restaurant. The officer found a family inside who were coughing and sneezing and not adhering to health guidelines, including the wearing of masks, authorities said during a news conference,” Fox reported. “A manager told the officer they wanted the people to leave the establishment because they were making everyone inside ‘uneasy.’ When the officer approached the migrants, they said they had tested positive for the coronavirus and had been apprehended by Border Patrol agents several days prior before being released. “ Read more from The Daily Wire.
