According to the report, the released migrants ranged in age from infants to the elderly – nearly 1,300 of whom were under the age of ten.
The nearly 12,000 Covid-positive migrants were aged between 18 and 40 – with more than 11,800 of them male. Over 6,000 were between 20 and 29-years-old.
According to the source, the releases occurred in multiple cities across the United States between January 2021 and early October.
The totals do not include the thousands of untested migrants released directly by the Border Patrol. The Border Patrol testing of migrants has been limited to unaccompanied migrant children later turned over to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
As reported by Breitbart Texas, the Border Patrol relied on non-government organizations to test migrants after their release from detention. Many of those migrants were later released to self-quarantine at hotels within border cities. -Breitbart
According to Breitbart’s source, covid-status did not factor into the decision to release.
“With the pace of referrals from the Border Patrol, we tested, made the migrants aware, and released them to avoid increasing the detained population,” they said, adding “None of the migrants received the COVID-19 vaccine, either voluntary or forced.”
The covid-positive releases happened during a record-breaking year for illegal migration into the United States along the southwest border – with the number of apprehensions YTD being unmatched by any previous single-year total dating back nearly 100 years, according to the report.
