Joe Biden’s White House has confirmed that the hundreds of thousands of illegals flooding across our southern border will not be required to take COVID tests, wear masks, get vaccines, or suffer through any other coronavirus policies.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was pressed on the matter during a Monday press conference where she made the odd proclamation that all these illegals are “not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time.”
As if that makes a difference to COVID?
Per the New York Post:
During Monday’s daily press briefing, Psaki was pressed on why there are so many steps pertaining to COVID-19 when flying into the country, such as providing vaccination proof or a negative COVID-19 test, but seemingly none for those who walk across the border.
“As individuals come across the border, and they are both assessed for whether they have any symptoms, if they have symptoms they are,” Psaki said.Trending:
“The intention is for them to be quarantined. That is our process, they’re not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time, I don’t think it’s the same thing. It’s not the same thing.”
“We are expelling individuals based on Title 42 specifically because of COVID because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering posing a threat to the community and also to the migrants themselves,” she added.
Psaki did not explain why length of stay makes any difference whatever if COVID is so dangerous. Further, it seems to run contrary to states that demand that visitors “self-isolate” for up to two weeks before being allowed to wander freely in the state. Why being an illegal who intends a “short trip” makes any difference is anyone’s guess.
