Biden enacts travel ban on India beginning May 4

President Joe Biden has banned travel to India as concerns over the COVID-19 crisis rise in the densely populated country, according to Fox News.

This move comes just months after the president said he didn’t believe that travel bans would stop coronavirus. Those comments were made at the height of the 2020 presidential election, near the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki made the announcement on Friday afternoon, telling reporters that the decision was made with the counsel of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who has taken point since the start of COVID-19’s appearance on US soil.

“The administration will restrict travel from India starting immediately,” Psaki told reporters. “The policy will be implemented in light of extraordinarily high COVID-19 caseloads and multiple variants circulating in India.”

The newly enacted policy will take effect on Tuesday, May 4, an announcement which may itself spark a flood of people back into the United States.

According to Fox, the president was previously very suspicious of any plans that included a travel ban, something his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, was known well for.  

“Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it,” Biden tweeted in March 2020 at the very start of the pandemic.

“A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” he wrote. “Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it.”

Most of us want to have good income but don’t know how to do that on Internet there are a lot of methods to earn huge sum, but whenever Buddies try that they get trapped in a scam/fraud so I thought to share with you a genuine and guaranteed method for free to earn huge sum of money at home. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where I started.

Why wasn’t it done sooner?? We have known about the situation in India since last week. I am sure that this illegitimate Administration is hoping it comes here in order to control us until the 2022 election. FU.K YOU BIDEN

I believe that potato head Biden changes his thinking depending on which side of his head is on his pillow when he takes one of his frequent naps. Is there some device in his pillow that his handlers access to influence him?

Brad, you are all wrong, Biden does and says what the
Communist handlers want him to do and say.

last day leading our great nation.

Keep on praying.

We need to kick out all the Democrats up for re-election in the Congress and the Senate. THEN we need Republicans with some backbone to impeach Mr. Potato Head and find him guilty of incompetence so we can relieve him of his obligation to sleep in the White House a couple of days a week. We can proceede to do the same for Madam Harris and end the nightmare early.

But Joe if you ban travel to a foreign country you are being xenophobic.
