Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Monday he did not expect such a surge in the Delta Covid-19 variant as he admitted that the 'rate of illness' at the southern border is now 20%. 'What I didn't expect was the tragic rise of the delta variant,' the secretary said at the virtual Immigration Law and Policy Conference Monday afternoon. 'And we took a step back by reason of that. I did not expect to be in late September where we are.' He said that one in five migrants are showing up at the border with an 'illness.'....

'When one is speaking of 7,000 or 7,500 people encountered at the border every day, if one takes a look at that the system, it is not built for that in a Covid environment where isolation is required,' Mayorkas said....

He also said Sunday on Fox News that over 12,000 of those migrants had been released into the US, and that number could go up as 5,000 are still being processed.
