Republicans are awfully silent about the scandal that is the southwest border. One cans safely state that Republicans make the border an issue only when they are running for office.
Unscreened individuals from disease hot-spots in Africa and central America are being given safe passage into your communities. “No special screening, extra scrutiny, or quarantine required.”
Republicans refuse to perform their constitutional duty to protect their citizens from an onslaught. Watch them wake up, conveniently, when the Democrats are in power.
On the other hand, The dumb Democrats would win hands down in 2020 if they screamed bloody blue murder over the criminal negligence, ostensibly under the Republicans, on the border.
REMEMBER: “Whether they’re armed with bombs or bacteria, stopping weaponized invaders from harming Americans falls within the purview of the U.S. government. The government’s basic duty is to protect America from health and safety threats, both foreign and domestic.” (See “Will CDC Trace Polio-Like Outbreak, Or Just Shout ‘Racism’?“)
But we Deplorables just accept dereliction that borders on treason.
“550 African migrants were just caught in Texas. DHS head says they aren’t being screened for Ebola“:
The border crisis is no longer exclusively a problem of illegal Central American migrants. As word spreads of the collapse of border enforcement, the number of migrants from Africa continues to increase. The threat of bringing in dangerous diseases is higher than ever, yet there are no mandatory and universal screenings, quarantines, or detention before illegal immigrants are released into our communities, often within hours.
According to preliminary weekly data used internally by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and given to CR by a Border Patrol agent who must remain anonymous because he is not authorized to speak to the press, over 550 African migrants were apprehended in Texas in just one week – from May 30 through June 5. The lion’s share were from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the country with the worst Ebola outbreak in the world.
With great clarity, author Daniel Horowitz, argues that,
So why is [Trump’s guy) McAleenan himself not requiring such a process, and if such a process is unfeasible given the numbers, shouldn’t these people be inadmissible rather than being released? Asylum does not trump the medically inadmissible statutes of 8 U.S.C. 1182. In other words, if the criminal smuggling conspiracy is so successful that it results in catastrophic numbers jamming our border, why should that strengthen the claim of the aliens to be released without following medical quarantine rather than strengthen the claim of the American sovereign to keep them out
