$11 million in liquid meth found under passenger bus at Texas border crossing

EDINBURG, Texas (Border Report) — Citing “astronomical numbers” of coronavirus patients in South Texas, health and community officials are reaching out to Austin and other states, as well as to individual residents, to help battle what they say could soon overwhelm area hospitals.

On Monday, U.S. Reps. Filemon Vela Jr., and Henry Cuellar, both South Texas Democrats, sent a letter to Gov. Greg Abbott, asking him to deploy thousands of National Guard troops to the Rio Grande Valley to help quell the spread of COVID-19 and to help with patient testing. They also requested that the troops set up a field hospital to treat the infected.
