US is pushing to reject all asylum seekers, citing coronavirus worries

The Trump administration is reportedly planning to turn back all asylum seekers at both the northern and southern borders over concerns regarding the coronavirus outbreak. Under the new rule, set to be announced in the next 48 hours, border patrol agents would immediately return anyone to Mexico who attempts to cross the southwestern border, and would not be held for any amount of time in the US.

Personally, I think this flu panic is one the dumbest things I've ever seen or experienced and I am truly ashamed to be breathing the same air as some of you idiots. However, it's nice to see a return-to-sender policy being put in place at the southern border when catching illegal aliens. I'm sorry it had to come to this, though.

I find it very telling how suddenly that Trump is pushing these sorts of policy positions, and magically he isn't getting pushback anymore. It's almost like the biggest fans of open borders suddenly realized the consequences of open borders.

El Salvador is complaining about Mexico sanitary conditions and lack of testing refuses flights. I saw him on TV when reporter asks what he plans to do about the virus he makes a joke about Jesus will protect us. https://youtu.be/eDsU9OCnMMk https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/03/18/mexico-is-not-ready-coronavirus-just-look-amlos-behavior/ Mexico is not ready for the coronavirus. Just look at AMLO’s behavior.
