A question that nobody at the start of last year expected to be asked, is now a big one.
According to reports from Fox News, illegal immigrants who enter the country and are then ‘caught and released’ in the US do not have to receive a Covid-19 test before being let go.
What’s going on?
As President Joe Biden took office, the Centre for Disease Control announced that anyone who wanted to enter the United States via air travel would have to return two negative Covid-19 tests; one as you boarded the plane, and one after you leave.
They cited that this policy was being introduced in order to slow ‘the introduction’ of the virus into the country, whilst still allowing Americans and tourists to travel.
However, travellers who return negative tests must still wear a mask at all times, including throughout the entire flight and in the airport.
This ruling effectively told the nation and the rest of the world that if you want to enter the United States, then you must test negative for Covid-19.
But what about illegal immigrants?
However, as per reports from Fox News, the Biden administration has not been testing the thousands of illegal immigrants that enter the US from the southern border.
When questioned by a Fox News reporter, White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki was completely unaware of the situation that was confirmed to the network by the president of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, who claimed that ‘illegal aliens’ were not being tested at the border before being let into American communities.
So, that begs the question, if the coronavirus is as dangerous as the CDC and the American government want you to believe, then why is there no border testing for ILLEGAL immigrants?
This answer remains to be seen, but the government has set a very dangerous precedent.
Politicians haven’t set an example
They’re willing to allow immigrants into the country, immigrants who break one of the first laws of this country, to carry a deadly virus that could result in thousands of more Americans losing their lives needlessly.
All whilst this is going, multiple high profile political figures, including Gavin Newsom, the Governor for California, have been consistently breaking their own policies set out to combat the virus.
Newsom was photographed dining in a crowded room without wearing a mask in arguably the most expensive eating establishment in the state.
This then leads to another, crucial question; is it one rule for us and one rule for the political establishment and those they favour?
The answer, based on a multitude of evidence, appears to be a resounding yes.
