Illegal immigrants in El Paso bringing DISEASES like scabies, measles, bed bugs...

Illegal immigrants pouring into Texas from the United States' border with Mexico are bringing with them diseases – especially in the city of El Paso, where the tens of thousands of illegals residing in the city have brought with them scabies, measles, bed bugs and even the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

This is according to Republican Rep. Tony Gonzales of Texas' 23rd congressional district, which includes the city of El Paso and a majority of Texas' border with Mexico, who rode along with the police chief of Socorro, directly to the south of El Paso.

"Imagine having to protect and serve a city of 40,000, all while a border crisis is busting at the seams in El Paso, only 15 minutes away," wrote Gonzales on his Twitter account.

Gonzales added that police officers told him: "Tony, don't be here unless you have to. There have been cases of scabies, measles, COVID and bed bugs. Take care of your health."

Former U.S. Marine and senior writer for Townhall Julio Rosas noted during a tour through one illegal camp that many of the undocumented Venezuelans residing in the city's downtown have not been processed properly after they illegally crossed the border, nor are they using the Customs and Border Patrol app meant to track them and provide them with information. Instead, they were all released immediately into the city without any kind of procedure to check their health.

"I heard a lot of coughing and sneezing. [Gonzales] said it reminds him of an Afghanistan refugee camp," wrote Rosas. "The conditions people are camping out in El Paso are very poor because the sidewalks are full by the church, others are in alleyways. All of this is before Title 42 is officially gone."
