“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
The Biden administration found itself tied up in knots over a policy issue: The Democrats want illegals to come to the United States; the more, the better. But they also want to be able to say that they solved the global COVID-19 emergency with their brilliant strategy of lockdowns, mandates, and threats if you don’t wear a mask.
They know most of the illegal aliens, job-seekers, and “refugees” coming to the U.S. aren’t vaccinated. With the highly contagious Delta variant going around, the thousands of unvaccinated illegal immigrants pouring across the border are probably carriers — and spreaders.

This isn’t just speculation: The Biden administration argued this in court.
The number of illegal immigrants flooding the United States has exploded since Joe Biden and Kamala Harris took office in January.
Some of the illegals came to the border wearing Joe Biden’s name on their clothing.
It’s been more than 1.5 million illegals so far this year—with no end in sight. The illegals even crossed the Mexican and Texas/Arizona deserts in the dead of summer…which rarely happens. They know, with left-wing Democrats in office, this is their chance.
The Biden administration has mostly let the illegals come right in on the red carpet. They momentarily stop them, give them a court date, and then release them—never to be seen again.
But Biden made one exception: He’s keeping out people who are positive for COVID-19 or other diseases—and that’s a lot of them. In August, 200,000 illegals came to the United States—and Biden had 44% of them expelled from the country out of concern about disease.
He’s using a measure called Title 42, which lets the U.S. remove illegal aliens who might be a risk to make Americans sick.

But then, a Democratic judge struck that down. The Border Patrol was ordered to stop using Title 42 and let everyone come across the border by U.S. District Judge Emmett Sullivan, a Bill Clinton appointee.
That could lead to a huge spike in the coronavirus—and make the border a superspreader event.
An appeals court decided to let the Biden administration appeal—and let it keep using Title 42 in the meantime. But that could all change, depending on how the courts rule.
What’s interesting is the Biden administration’s legal argument. The Biden administration said that about out of every five illegal immigrants tests positive for Covid—at least, that’s what the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security told the court.
“Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said this week that 20% of the migrants they’re seeing at the border are ill, and given the numbers they’re seeing of 7,000 people a day, he said having them in Border Patrol stations would be a recipe for disease spread,” reported The Washington Times.
You know something’s bad when even the Biden administration is worried it will attract too many illegal immigrants.
That’s important for a few reasons. First of all, the Left claims that people who believe in enforcing U.S. borders are racists, and one of the most common arguments lately is to say concern about diseases is somehow a continuation of the Nazi argument that foreigners are all sick.

“The GOP is reviving the old history of blaming outsiders for disease,” reported The Washington Post.
But in court, the truth comes out: The Democrats know that an uncontrolled border means more disease—and more Americans wheezing or dying from COVID-19.
The far-Left says—so what? America must help illegal immigrants with their medical condition, anyway. “If the Biden administration really wants to treat asylum seekers humanely, it should end this lawless policy now and withdraw its appeal,” ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt told Fox News. “We will continue fighting to end this illegal policy.”
And one of those people is the president of the United States (at least, that’s his title). President Joe Biden said the United States’ “obligation” to give free healthcare to illegal immigrants.
In 2019, Biden said that illegal aliens “need to have a means by which they can be covered when they’re sick.” “In an emergency, they should have healthcare,” he said. “How do you say, you’re undocumented, I’m gonna let you die, man?”
Biden believes COVID-19 is an emergency. So, who does Joe Biden have to thank for the huge Covid surge running, driving, and swimming across America’s southern border?
No one but himself.

American voters also need to remember who we have to thank for the illegal immigration crisis and the Covid surge—and thank Biden and the Democrats at the polls.
