Which policy is more Neanderthal in pandemic control — allowing Texans to make up their own minds about masking up, or releasing COVID-positive illegal immigrants into the state? There might arguably be a bit of glass-house stone-throwing in both directions here, but Greg Abbott didn’t start the Neanderthal showdown, either (via Townhall):

“Two things, Brian, first, obviously it is not the type of thing that a president should be saying, but second, he kind of said it on the worst day he could have. Because the same day he said that, in Texas, the Biden administration was releasing illegal immigrants into our communities who had COVID,” Abbott said.

“The Biden administration was spreading COVID in south Texas yesterday because of their lack of constraint of testing and quarantining, people come across the border illegally. The Biden administration was exposing Texas to COVID,” Abbott continued. “That is a neanderthal type approach dealing with the COVID situation.”

They weren’t just going to Texas, either. While the Biden administration released them in Texas, NBC reported that these COVID-positive immigrants had destinations across the US. The only quibble might be that ICE may not have known of their COVID-positive status, but only because they might not be checking. Guess who does check? Texans:
