Texas Gov. Lies When Saying Migrants Infected with COVID-19

By Jose Torres, Reporting from The Valley of Tears

The photo above shows migrants from different countries in line at a help center in McAllen, Texas. They crossed the border from Reynosa, Tamaulipas to Hidalgo, Texas. It’s expected that about 1,000 migrants a day will show up in each customs office. Criminal organizations are charging $500 per person (child or adult) to cross the Rio Bravo. If the migrant does not pay, they are in danger of beatings or even death, according to Telemundo.

This photo shows Catholic Charities RGV, where the migrants are received. The bus driver says that before crossing into this country the migrants are tested for Covid-19. Then, at this center, they are tested again. So, Greg Abbot, the Texas governor, and his allies, are only lying in saying that these migrants and children are infected with the virus.
