The Democrats’ COVID-19 Double Standard

Democrats like to talk about “equality,” but their actions and policies are far from fair or equal.

Consider the extreme hardship the pandemic has caused Americans the past 14 months, during which citizens have lost their jobs and liberties and millions of our children have been denied an in-person education. We’ve been told by self-serving teachers unions and the government that it’s “too dangerous” for our kids to go to school or participate in sports or any school activities, no matter how detrimental the loss of these basic rights has been for their mental health and well-being.

But now, under the Biden-Harris administration, thousands of migrants and unaccompanied minors — many who have the coronavirus — are being encouraged to illegally enter the U.S. during an ongoing pandemic. Many are being crammed into overflowing migrant detention centers that liberals described as “cages” during the prior administration. “More than 100,000 people were either apprehended by or surrendered to federal immigration officials in February, including about 9,460 unaccompanied minors and more than 19,240 families,” reports the Texas Tribune.

At least 10% of migrants packed into a Midland, Texas, detention facility had the highly contagious coronavirus. “There were still 485 youths there, of which 53 had tested positive for COVID-19,” reported Newsweek two weeks ago.

But that’s not all. In Donna, Texas, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection holding facility is only supposed to house 250 people during the pandemic, yet thousands of migrants are being jammed together, creating a public health crisis. “On Tuesday, the tent complex was holding more than 4,100 migrants, including 3,200 unaccompanied children, according to Oscar Escamilla, a Border Patrol official in the Rio Grande Valley who briefed reporters during the first press tour of a CBP facility under President Biden,” reported CBS News yesterday.

Why hasn’t the Biden administration, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention condemned the massive influx of illegal immigrants and called these overcrowded facilities dangerous superspreader events?

It’s well known that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents are currently holding at least 15,500 unaccompanied children. How many of these children and their travel companions have the coronavirus and are spreading it? Are law-abiding citizens allowed to ask that question while we’re forced to quarantine if exposed to the coronavirus?

Remember it was Fauci who was quick to put the kibosh on Americans mixing with other households, traveling or gathering with family throughout the past year, but apparently noncitizens are free to do all of the above — no problem.

It’s well known that, right now, thousands of migrants are being released into the United States interior; many are being joined with relatives or live in taxpayer-funded hotels, and many have not been tested for the coronavirus prior to their release — an egregious double standard that won’t bode well for Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections and beyond.

Voters will not forget that they were not allowed to visit an elderly parent or grandparent suffering from loneliness or comfort a loved one that was sick or dying in the hospital during the pandemic. Evidently, the Biden-Harris administration and their supporters care more about the well-being of noncitizens than taxpaying citizens footing the bill.

Something that is angering California parents are the San Diego teachers who are willing to teach in person to migrant children at local detention centers — while taxpayers’ children have been denied access to in-person education.

On what planet is this fair and equitable treatment of American citizens?

Meanwhile, flip-flopping Fauci was quick to call a Trump White House event a “superspreader event” after several attendees contracted the virus following a Sept. 26 Rose Garden event last year. “I think the data speak for themselves,” Fauci told CBS News Radio. “We had a superspreader event in the White House, and it was in a situation where people were crowded together, were not wearing masks.”

Perhaps the media will now ask Fauci and the CDC how many migrants are entering the United States without a mask and how many are being tested — or not tested — for the coronavirus prior to being released into our communities.

This year, Fauci also discouraged NFL fans from gathering with other households who wanted to watch the Super Bowl together. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director told Savannah Guthrie: “Every time we do have something like this, there always is a spike — be it a holiday, Christmas, New Year’s, Thanksgiving. … Enjoy the game, watch it on television, but do it with the immediate members of your family, the people of your household. As much fun as it is to get together in a big Super Bowl party, now is not the time to do that.”

Yet today, his new boss’s reckless immigration policies have created a public health fiasco and superspreader events while they mandate that citizens socially distance, wear masks indefinitely and obey other stringent mitigation measures to “stop the spread.”

Double standard, no?

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._

Simply send ALL illegal aliens back to where they came from… period! It should be obvious that the Godless Democratic Party of Treason is attempting to build a population of illegal aliens merely to vote in their favor, and this must never happen or we’ll all be speaking Spanish. Do I have to explain further? Illegal aliens have already turned California and other States in the Union into a cesspool. Need I explain further?

I agree with you all the way. You stated it very well, and I am sure many people feel the same way. It is not longer Americans first. The evil rages on and on.

Just a reminder a genuinely deadly pandemic doesn’t require 24/7 advertising to remind you it exists.
Real pandemics don’t need marketing campaigns and endless propaganda….. But

Psychological Operations

Just because immigrants aren’t quarantined is no reason for U. S. citizens to risk their lives. The key to all this is to help the south American countries become self-sufficient. Most South Americans are Catholic. So some entity needs to help. There is an American Anthropologist in Guatemala who wants to put in a tourist to get money for that country. Maybe he will be successful.

I know that you are not very smart, because allowing infected illegals all over the country, will in no way help a South American country become self sufficient. In addition it adds a added burden on the tax payer that is totally un necessary. There are no jobs for these people, there are no jobs for Americans, so we do not need millions of workers coming here looking for work. Add to that that we have a nut in the Dark House, that is sending thousands of infected illegals all over the country, there is only one reason that they could be doing this for. To kill Americans (that means you to Democrat), to replace you with cheap labor to help the rich get richer. So stop thinking about Guatemala, and start thinking about your or your kids future. If you can look at it from this point of view, you might come to a different point conclusion.

Joe Biden should be charged with murder, with every death due to the Covid-19. He claims he wants to eliminate it, yet he doesn’t show it.

The Drms only want to eliminate white people . They want super spreaders to kill us off. Then they’ll have all the downtrodden Hispanics as slaves with mo worries of insurrection or rebellion!! The Dems are a Godless party that cares nothing about the scantification of human life.. They are hypocrites and immoral!!

Let’s send all our extra masks to Dr. Fauci so he can go down to Biden’s Border and personally hand them out to Biden and Harris’ migrants. While there he can explain to the immigrants the importance of social distancing while sleeping 6 feet apart in the crammed facilities. They would love to have a one on one with the good doc. And we would love to get rid of him for awhile. It would serve all of us well.

The trouble with all of this illegal immigration is that our officers that are supposed to be protecting us from crime are supporting it. WHy would anyone allow the illegals into the country, I dont care who said it was alright. WHy are they not sending them back. Are they crazy? Is this another Nazi Germany again??? Why did people follow HItler down the destructive path, why are the border patrol doing the same thing by following this policy. Exposing the illegals to the virus by keeping them in close quarters is liken to gas chambers for the jewish people, only using virus warefare . Only the murder rate is much lower although the pain and suffering from the Co V is devastating. Do not support joes non border policy. Stop letting these illegals in to become CO V infected through close quarters with no maask. Stop killing these people, this is not humane. Hard to believe that this president is doing this, how EVIL! STOP THE ILLEGAL KILLING.

Now if you are not a Democrat you are going to get screwed by this Administration. Illegals come first to them.

I believe all dumocraps should be without protection unless they’re paying for it. They’ve taken enough of OURtsx dollars and STOLEN social security from us. They’re honestly scared. So someone at the facilities need to tell them where these higher ups live and to go there for food and anything else they need. After all piglowsi, biden. Schumer and Harris allowed this to happen. Actions have consequences
