President Trump is at the forefront of the fight to stop the coronavirus.
His administration is working around the clock to bring the people and resources together to get the job done.
And now President Trump took decisive action to stop one source of the Chinese coronavirus.
Trump’s crucial decisions to shut the borders and halt travel from China and European countries provided time for America to prepare.
By making those decisions, President Trump significantly slowed what would have been a much more rapid outbreak here in the United States.
And now Trump is pushing to make another big play in the fight against coronavirus by closing the borders to illegal aliens and asylum seekers and having them returned immediately to Mexico by border patrol agents.
The New York Times reports, “The Trump administration plans to immediately turn back all asylum seekers and other foreigners attempting to enter the United States from Mexico illegally, saying the nation cannot risk allowing the coronavirus to spread through detention facilities and border patrol agents.
“But under the new rule, set to be announced in the next 48 hours, border patrol agents would immediately return anyone to Mexico — without any detainment and without any due process — who attempts to cross the southwestern border between the legal ports of entry. They would not be held for any length of time in an American facility.”
The Left is going to throw a temper tantrum and those calling for open borders will likely seek legal action.
But Trump knows that in order to protect Americans, decisive action must be taken to prevent a rampant outbreak like the one we saw in China from coming across our borders.
The decisions to close down the borders in response to the outbreak are being taken by other countries around the world too – the U.S. is not alone in taking that action.
Canada has shut down its border to foreigners with the exception of those from the United States and the European Union halted any foreigners from traveling across borders amid the global coronavirus pandemic.
President Trump stepping up security and closing the border is in line with actions taken by open border activists like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the leaders of Europe.
