Donald Trump is using every tool at his disposal to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
But even Trump’s supporters never thought he would go this far.
And Donald Trump just shut down one source of coronavirus with this shocking decision.
Donald Trump’s historic decisions to close down the borders to travel from China and countries in Europe slowed the ability of the coronavirus to take root in America.
Those decisions bought the United States critical time to prepare.
Now the President is looking to cut off another potential point of outbreak by shutting down the border to illegal aliens and asylum seekers by having border patrol return anyone caught trying to invade the country immediately to Mexico.
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.”
Democrats will howl in outrage and open borders activists will likely try to sue.
But the President knows he must take extraordinary steps in these times to keep the American people safe and prevent an unchecked outbreak of the Chinese coronavirus from filtering across America’s southern border.
This step is in line with other nations around the world.
Canada closed its border to foreigners except those from the United States and the European Union also shut down the ability of foreigners to cross their borders.
Trump shutting down the border to illegal immigration and asylum seekers is in line with actions taken by open border activists like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the leaders of Europe.
