Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said Monday during a Fox News Town Hall that he would not consider restricting movement across the U.S. border to prevent the spread of a worldwide contagion like COVID-19.
Today’s read is from Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), the exclusive labor representative of approximately 16,000 Border Patrol agents. Here’s an excerpt:
The coronavirus gives our government a new reason to enforce our immigration laws – protecting public health. While most illegal immigrants don’t carry communicable diseases, a minority do. And some of them will undoubtedly be carrying the coronavirus, especially as the virus becomes more widespread.
Yet instead of supporting the president’s efforts to secure our border, federal courts are hindering his efforts.
