More and more people are going to be showing their frustration with returning COVID-19/Delta variant “mandates” sweeping the nation in light of the recent “guidance” released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And now, that frustration has even permeated the walls of the House of Representatives.

Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) took to the House floor on Wednesday to address the elephant in the room — Democrats not saying a word about illegal immigrants who have tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus while members of Congress have are pretty much forced to adhere to strict, yet arbitrary COVID policies.

We have a crisis at our border and we’re playing footsie with mask mandates in the people’s house.

I mean, it’s absolutely absurd what this body is doing, the people's house. It's an embarrassment, it’s a mockery, and the American people are fed up. They want to go back to life. They want to go back to business. They want to go back to school without their children being forced to wear masks, to be put in the corner, to have mental health issues.

Roy was voicing the frustration of many Americans who were sold a bill of goods when they were initially told — a year and a half ago, mind you — that we only needed “15 days to slow the spread” of the Chinese coronavirus.

The Texas congressman continued and spoke of immigration and “human trafficking” being put to side in favor of virtue signaling by wearing masks in the House.

This sham of an institution is doing nothing for the American people, nothing for the betterment of the people that send their representatives here. I just met this morning with an organization that tries to take care of people from human trafficking, met with an elected official from Mexico, while cartels are raping and pillaging and killing.

And we have people infected with COVID coming through our southern border into Texas and you all put masks, masks up front here, here in the people's house?

Roy passionately said a lot more. For his full comments, watch below:
