GOP Threatens Action If DHS Hides Data On Covid-Positive Illegal Aliens


A group of House Republicans, led by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), say they are ready to take legislative action against President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) if the agency hides data on the number of coronavirus-positive illegal aliens released into the United States.

In a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the House Republicans call his leadership a “lackluster performance” and credit Biden’s “weak border policies” for “appalling” illegal immigration totals – nearly 200,000 border crossers were encountered by federal immigration officials in June.

“The June numbers put the United States at over 1 million encounters in just the first 7 months of this fiscal year,” they write:

With continued complicity from the Biden Administration, the United States is once again slated to see another massive increase in southern border encounters. For the month of July – reporting indicates another approximate 210,000 illegal migrant encounters – this will be the highest monthly total in the history of DHS.

The House Republicans then blast Mayorkas for what they say has been a “dangerously irresponsible” lack of transparency from DHS about the number of border crossers and illegal aliens testing positive for coronavirus being released into the U. S. interior.

By September 6, the House Republicans are requesting a slew of information on illegal immigration totals. Otherwise, they say they will take legislative action by introducing a resolution of inquiry that will require DHS to respond to their questions.

“The American people and migrants seeking to come here deserve better than the chaos of a wide-open border,” they write. “Without such a foundational mechanism as enforcement of the rule of law, you cannot begin to uphold the words of DHS’s mission.”

Specifically, the House Republicans want a breakdown on the number of border crossers who have illegally entered the U. S. since January 20 who subsequently tested positive for coronavirus and were released from DHS custody into the U.S. interior while still coronavirus-positive, and a total of how many have recieved a coronavirus vaccine after crossing the border.
