U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) failed to test 2,000 illegal migrants for COVID-19 before releasing them into Texas, according to reports.

The New York Post first reported on the release earlier this week, which prompted criticism of Biden's border policies from the Democrat Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano.

The border town of Del Rio, where migrants were released, is already suffering due to government-enforced lockdowns and an economic downturn.

“You have this whole administration whose major line item on their platform is a hard stance on COVID-19, and you have this humongous gap in that policy, humongous on ginormous proportion,” Lozano told the New York Post.

“I don’t think it’s my city’s responsibility to test these migrants. I think it’s the federal government’s responsibility,” he added.

“They’re forcing it down our throats.”

In February, Lozano sent a video message to Joe Biden urging him to stop dumping migrants in the Del Rio region.

“That’s when the logistical nightmare begins; where are they going to sleep for the night? That’s the number I worry about each day,” Lozano declared.

WATCH:

“You’re condoning unlawful behavior, period,” he added.

"There’s a lawful way to enter the United States, there’s a lawful way to seek asylum, and it just undermines the entire immigration process."

Neon Nettle reported earlier in march overcrowding at Border Patrol facilities showed figures of 500% occupancy over the COVID-19 adjusted capacity.

Texas Governor Gregg Abbott slammed Biden for releasing COVID-positive illegal immigrants into Texas with his open border policies.

“The Biden administration was spreading COVID in South Texas yesterday because of their lack of constraint of testing and quarantining, people who had come across the border illegally."

Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee admitted Biden's border plan is much to be desired.

Jackson also acknowledged there is a huge problem at the southern border.

“[N]ow Jonathan, we have a situation that is a humanitarian concern,” she said.

“We do have issues with any number of children.

"They have a plan.

"The plan does not look like it’s working at this time, but you have to get it implemented.”
