The Party of Covid Criticizes Migration

 A group of House Republicans gathered on the southern border Monday to press on with their pivot to “Biden’s border crisis,” claiming that an influx of COVID-19-infected immigrants will set the country back in its fight against the pandemic.

Republicans have increasingly aired their concerns about the spread of COVID-19 at the border, a worry starkly at odds with their stance on the pandemic and desire to reopen society almost everywhere else.

“For our President to think opening the southern border to allow those coming in that are infected with or have been exposed to COVID makes no sense at all,” said Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-NM).  

“All the work we’ve done as a country to get our kids educated, open up our economies, ensure we’re doing the right thing to overcome this pandemic — opening the southern border makes no sense,” she added. “We’ve just taken three steps forward and 10 giant steps backwards.” 

There is not a crisis.
