BRANDON JUDD: I can personally tell you that when they come into our custody, we do not test them for COVID. We don’t vaccinate them. We just released them in the United States. And so, it demands that American citizens get vaccinated. But those people who enter our country illegally do not need to be vaccinated. They are able to spread this disease across the United States. Once again, hypocrisy knows no end with this administration.
COVID-19 is just one of the diseases entering the United States. We see it all the time. We put people in custody all the time who appear to be sick. We take them to the hospital and are diagnosed with many different illnesses. And that’s what crosses the border. It’s not just that they aren’t vaccinated with COVID-19. We are looking at hepatitis. We are looking at all kinds of different diseases that people are not vaccinated against. And it is happening in the United States right now.
