Hospital units in the Rio Grande Valley are experiencing increasing levels of stress due to the Wuhan virus pandemic.
On June 30, 2020, Hidalgo County, Texas recorded its largest increase in Wuhan virus cases.
According to a report from Valley Central, “Cameron County doctors say all major hospitals with COVID-19 units are full.”
“Cameron county is at 131% capacity, we went from being at 71% percent of COVID-19 beds to 131% percent, so overcapacity,” declared Dr. James Castillo of the Cameron County Health Authority.
Data from the Hidalgo County Wuhan virus dashboard indicated that the number of people hospitalized exceeded the number of beds available.
Both counties are under “Level 1 Emergency”. In other words, they are at maximum capacity and can request outside help.
“Right now people are waiting a long time, unfortunately, some people are leaving without receiving care and that’s always a huge concern,” commented one doctor at the Cameron County press conference, on June 30.
Additionally, Valley hospitals are understaffed.
“Yes, you have this room, but we still need doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, I need them to come to work and if they’re getting sick, which is what we are seeing, then we’re in a bigger deficit, so we have to bring nurses from other areas, pay them much more money to get them here for budgets we did not account for,” stated Ambrioso Hernandez, a medical doctor and the mayor of Pharr.
Around 400 nurses have been assigned to hospitals across the Valley area.
“Some of these nurses came from New York City, so they have been in the fire, they have been in the trenches and now they get to bring that experience and expertise to the Rio Grande Valley to help with this crisis we’re dealing with,” another doctor remarked at the press conference.
Todd Bensman, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, believes that border crossers may largely explain this late surge in cases at the border with Mexico
He tweeted “It’s official. Texas border hospitals are over-capacity with covid patients. This story, like most, omits reference to the fact that covid refugees are flooding in from Mexico, though CNN reported this to be true.”
Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review came to a similar conclusion in a recent piece.
The U.S. has to get serious about border security.
The Republican Party needs take the lead on this issue or run the risk of becoming politically irrelevant.
Tom Cotton Calls Out Joe Biden for His Pro-Amnesty Comments at the Last Debate
At Least One Senator Has the Stones To Call Out Democrats’ Immigration Plan to Transform the Country
After former Vice President Joe Biden declared at the presidential debate last week that Americans “owe” Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to illegal aliens, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton quickly pounced on Biden’s pro-amnesty declaration.
“We do not owe anything to these illegal aliens,” Cotton said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily interview with Alex Marlow. “They should be grateful that they’ve been tolerated in this country for all these years,” he declared.
This remark came the day after Biden called for a mega amnesty of the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S.
I am going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people and all of those so-called ‘dreamers,’ those DACA kids, they are going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship … They [DACA migrants] have been here — many of them are model citizens. Over 20,000 of them are first responders out there taking care of people during this crisis. We owe them. We owe them.
Cotton was quick to respond to Biden’s remarks:
He didn’t just say that we’re gonna give them an amnesty in the first hundred days — encouraging a rush to our border over the next six months — he said that we have to do it because we owe it to these illegal aliens.
We owe nothing to illegal aliens. We owe a duty to American citizens to help them get back on their feet and get back to work. And that’s true whether you know whether your parents came over on the Mayflower or it’s true whether you came here the right way, the legal way, and just took the oath of citizenship last week. That’s who we owe something to — to American citizens, not to the foreigners.
In Biden’s plan for mass amnesty, there was no real attempt to at least shore up border security or clamp down on visa fraud, which Cotton highlighted:
Biden is saying ‘I’m gonna send an amnesty bill to the Congress in my first hundred days without asking anything in return, without trying to secure our border, without enforcing immigration at workplaces against unscrupulous employers, without cracking down on visa fraud’
In Cotton’s view, the Democrats are “now the party of open borders, mass migration, and blanket amnesty … that’s a big shift and from where the Democrats were just eight years ago.”
Though Cotton has very hawkish views on foreign policy, his immigration views on are in line with Middle Americans. Immigration patriotism would be best served by politicians who prioritize policing our border, ports, and customs office, as opposed to countries who don’t bend the knee to the foreign policy blob’s demands.
When Cotton talks about immigration, he at his best. This issue is of critical importance to America and the GOP’s ability to stay competitive. Not only does mass migration disproportionately benefit Big Capital thanks to the depression of worker wages, it also create a massive voting bloc that will benefit the Democratic Party in future elections.
It’s time for Americans to realize what’s at stake in this election and vote for Donald Trump.
