After more than a year and a half, the federal government has finally reopened our northern and southern borders to "non-essential" travelers coming into the U.S. by car or on foot.
In a policy move that baffled Democrats and Republicans alike, and bankrupted many U.S. border businesses, illegal immigrants had been welcomed by the hundreds of thousands, while legal tourists were banned if they wanted to come across the land border by car or on foot.
Oddly enough, at the same time, it was still okay for travelers to fly in-- just not enter by foot or car.
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) is among those who had questioned the policy.

The old democrat party has been smashed by the hard left progressives Marxists...The 30% of this country that support this nonsense will lead their party into a permanent minority..One wonders if 'the enemy of the people'....the media, will continue to follow suit...Mainstream democrats will face a choice...continue to support the party's madness or find another avenue to express them selves....One wonders if they will swallow the red pill...

TQ for this song, heart warming in these strange, dark times! another one in return: Scam, written, produced, mixed and mastered by Prezence.

The policy makes sense on three grounds that I can think of: (1) the Democrats want those (presumed) new voters no matter what the other consequences might be; (2) allowing infected people through the Southern border might increase Covid rates in the South (especially Florida), thereby (hopefully) helping the Dems' efforts to demonize Southern strategies for dealing with the epidemic; and (3) raising the blood pressure of those who oppose such blatant anti-American double standards, thereby (again, hopefully) increasing the likelihood of some violent "right-wing" reaction, which the government desperately wants in order to justify even further infringements on our freedoms..
Outstanding overview, Stephen !
