Alleged migrant misconduct not reflected in reports

Amid allegations of trespassing and thefts at the hands of migrants, Uvalde County Sheriff Charles Mendeke and Uvalde Police Department Chief Daniel Rodriguez recently compiled reports their departments have fielded since U.S. Border Patrol agents began releasing migrants in Uvalde last month.

In a story released by The Conservative Review last week, Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin gave a fiery interview that blasts federal elected officials, refers to Uvalde as a no-man’s-land that has become a dumping ground for migrants, takes issue with limited screenings for communicable diseases, and indicates burglaries and vehicle thefts are on the rise. However, according to McLaughlin, the writer did twist his words some.

When reached by phone on Wednesday, McLaughlin said three of the 117 migrants who have come through the Uvalde Station have been quarantined for an illness. He said two of the individuals were diagnosed with mumps and another was quarantined for suspected mumps, though the diagnosis was not confirmed.
