Sara Carter was in McAllen, Texas Wednesday interviewing locals about migrants’ COVID-19 positivity rates. According to some Border Patrol officials, it’s as high as 20%. Carter reported the story on Hannity Wednesday.
One resident said the narrative from the Biden administration is that these infected migrants will be quarantined and provided with personal protective equipment. “It’s a lie, because I watched it being broken constantly,” he told Carter. He admitted that he’d only stopped by a processing facility for fifteen minutes on one occasion.
However, his observation was confirmed by Catholic Charities Director Sister Norma Pimentel. The director told CBS News that the spaces meant for quarantine are crowded. “It got to a point where that space is not even readily available,” Pimentel said.
“We have compassion,” another resident told Carter. “But at the same time, this is in our backyard. What about our children? What about our families?” Meanwhile, President Biden leaves the border wide open “exposing everyone,” she said.
Yet another resident told Carter he’d like to tell Biden: “We’re dying. Help us. You’re doing this to us.”
“Residents are frustrated, they’re angry,” Carter said. “They say they’ve been abandoned by the Biden administration.”
Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) recently passed an amendment to give Immigration and Customs Enforcement more resources to be able to detain these sick migrants. Otherwise, ICE will have no other choice but to release them all over the country.

California Tells COVID-Positive Medical Staff to ‘Return to Work Immediately, Without Isolation or Testing’
The Los Angeles Times came out with a piece Wednesday titled, “With hospitals reeling, California tells COVID-positive medical workers to stay on the job.” With more and more patients arriving to the emergency room every day, forced to wait entire days to be seen, there is no one to answer the phones and no one to take out the trash.
Due to the Omicron-fueled surge, healthcare workers are calling out sick in droves, and has “left the medical infrastructure on edge.” As a result, California, and other state’s officials are examining a “Sweeping policy change that allows asymptomatic healthcare workers who have tested positive for the coronavirus to return to work immediately, without isolation or testing.”
Currently, the policy will remain in place through February 1st to avoid staffing shortages. The California Department of Public Health said because hospitals are reaching capacity, providing essential care is extremely compromised.
“Given those conditions, the department is providing temporary flexibility to help hospitals and emergency services providers respond to an unprecedented surge and staffing shortages” said the agency.
On Tuesday, nurses and representatives with the SEIU 721 union spoke out against the measure outside the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting in downtown to L.A. The California Nurses Association also said it planning a “day of action” for Thursday to condemn the state’s decision.
“It is absolutely infuriating that Democrats turned our nation upside down, harmed our children and may have even allowed the Democrats to steal an election creating these mandates, only to be forced to throw it all out the window on a whim because they did not work” says Sara Carter
“When President Trump was questioning these things, when I would question these things, when any sane person would question these things, the Democrats tried to make everyone look like they wanted to kill their grandmother and that we were conspiracy theorists” adds Carter.
“Is the situation ideal? No,” said Dr. Robert-Kim Farley, an epidemiologist and infectious-diseases expert at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. “Is it the lesser of the two evils of having no one to care for patients, versus having staff caring for them that may have COVID? Yes, it’s the lesser of two evils.”
The L.A. Times adds, “Kim-Farley said the policy is a recognition of the significant strain hospitals are experiencing amid an increased number of patients and decreased number of staff. The chances of transmission from an asymptomatic worker are minimal, he said, particularly since he or she would be practicing precautions, including wearing high-grade medical masks.”
