Whistleblowers Allege Cover-Up of COVID Outbreak at Facility for Illegal Minors

Volunteers who served at a detention facility for underaged illegal aliens blew the whistle on Wednesday about an alleged plot to cover up the true number of cases of coronavirus among the detainees after an outbreak, as reported by the New York Post.

The claims were made in a filing by the Government Accountability Project, a nonprofit watchdog group; the two whistleblowers were Arthur Pearlstein and Lauren Reinhold, described by the filing as “career federal civil servants” who had been volunteering at the detention facility in Fort Bliss, Texas from the months of April to June.

According to the filing, “COVID was widespread among children and eventually spread to many employees,” infecting “hundreds” of children. However, when volunteers were brief on the situation at a meeting by a senior official at the U.S. Public Health Service, they were told that “if that graph” depicting the number of infections “is going to The Washington Post every day, it’s the only thing we’ll be dealing with and politics will take over, perception will take over, and we’re about reality, not perception.”

In addition to the deliberate cover-up, the whistleblowers also claimed that there was “significant waste, fraud, and abuse” at the facility, after the federal authorities delegated most operational control to private contractors. Complaints raised internally at the time were “ignored or rejected.” Pearlstein alleges that when he suggested going out to purchase supplies for the illegals such as underwear, shoes, and socks, a federal manager responded with “I don’t have time for this sh**.” This led to volunteers ultimately spending hundreds of dollars out of pocket for such supplies, as well as luxuries such as books and games.
