The Centers for Disease Control is relaxing COVID-19 restrictions on facilities that house unaccompanied child migrants crossing into the United States through the roughly 2,000 mile border with Mexico. Why? Because the Biden administration is being overwhelmed by the tidal wave of illegal alien migration since over turning former President Trump’s strict border policies. The move to fill the facilities to 100% capacity is an effort to house the droves of children arriving to the U.S.
A memo obtained by Axios found the agency warning “facilities should plan for and expect to have COVID-19 cases.”
The CDC is sidelining health restrictions as a crisis at the southern border intensifies.

Sara Carter spoke live from the border Friday night on Hannity, reporting that children are flooding into the country daily and that border agents are “overwhelmed.”
“There are roughly 700 to 1,000 undocumented migrants, some of them unaccompanied minors, pouring into Texas daily, ” Carter said live from McAllen, Tex. “There is a crisis on the southern border as well, with the drug cartels battling it out, as well as human traffickers.”
Carter confirmed children are entering the country alone, some as young as four-years-old.
Some migrant children told Carter stories of jumping onto trains to get to the border and horror stories of other children falling of trains or disappearing along the four month journey from Honduras.
Carter found that migrants misunderstood Biden’s stop on deportations for 100 days “as an invitation to arrive to the United States.”
Children appeared in Texas without parents, or with adults who were strangers and potentially paid by parents who are back in Honduras.
“The crisis couldn’t be any worse,” Carter said. “More and more undocumented children are coming across the border. There’s a big concern here as well with the spread of COVID and that the majority of people coming through here are not being tested.”
This lack of testing and the new policy change to allow facilities to fill to 100% is the only option, Axios reports, according to the CDC memo.
It says the “only available options” for minors coming across the border without parents is “prolonged stays at [Customs & Border Protection] facilities operating significantly above COVID-19 capacities,” Axios reports.
The memo says the Customs and Border Patrol does not have the ability to follow pandemic guidelines.
“At this time, CBP does not have adequate space for physical distancing, quarantine of persons exposed to COVID-19 or isolation of ill or infected persons,” the memo reads.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
