How can it be considered a smart policy to protect the citizens of our country from the spread of COVID by restricting legal travel via Air from another country while simultaneously allowing an unfettered flow of undocumented and untested number of illegals crossing by foot across our Southern Border?
According to the CBP (Customs and Border Patrol) there were 78,000 attempted illegal border crossings in January. Those are who were caught and do not include those who were able to cross and avoid apprehension. There is no policy that requires testing before entering our Southern Border, as a matter of fact, Biden has committed to vaccinating border crossers. American citizens are either waiting to register for their shots or are on a list with 60 days until they will receive their first dose but walk across our border and Joe will be there waiting with a syringe. Will this insanity ever stop and we are only six weeks in!
This is what is happening with folks from say, Europe, who want to fly to America. This is from the Department of State website:
Effective January 26, all airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within three calendar days of travel regardless of where they are traveling from. Alternatively, travelers to the United States may provide documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel. If you need to travel due to an extraordinary humanitarian emergency and you are unable to obtain a test, please see COVID-19 Testing Waivers, below. In addition, the order also requires a passenger attestation stating they have received a negative Qualifying Test result (this is not in place of a test). Check the CDC website for additional information.
The test must be a viral test (NAAT or antigen test) to determine if you are currently infected with COVID-19. Travelers should avoid the antibody tests which look for prior infection.
The Biden administration is being very careful to avoid the term Crisis when asked about the situation at the border. They claim it to be a Challenge that is under control while blaming the increase in crossings on Trump and his lack of immigration policy……nonsense!
Under Trump, we had an allegiance with Mexico to keep asylum seekers in Mexico until processed. We were building the wall which by every agency and metric was showing to be effective. The word was do not try to come to America illegally as you will be caught and turned back. Border crossings were down. Drug flow was down. Illegal gun and gang member flow was down. So what did Biden do during his first week? Reverse every Trump initiative and effectively turn the flow of all across the border traffic back on. Biden is doing all he can to hide the disastrous results of his actions but the word is out. Camps that had been closed under Trump for lack of need are now being reopened. Thousands of beds are needed immediately for children crossing unattended or with someone other than their parent and set the record straight; these are not innocent 4 and 5 year old children but 13 to 17 year old males who threaten our security as many will end up in established Mexican gangs in our country. In six short weeks, Biden has turned our border into a disaster while at the same time making it difficult for legitimate and legal world travelers to enter our country. If not so serious and sad, this would all make a good book or movie about how an old and out of control President was making one bad decision after another but it is not a fictional account. It is real and we are in trouble. The effort to destroy America is being led by forces among us and its leader is Joe Biden.
