New Border Restrictions Announced

New Border Restrictions Announced

(WatchDogNews.org) – The federal government is working quickly to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus across the US. In his update about the virus on March 20, President Donald Trump announced new plans to combat the illness. According to the commander-in-chief, addressing the borders is a top priority.

Trump let the public know that he’s closing both North American borders to essential traffic only. The US will still allow cargo to move between Mexico and Canada. The Department of Homeland Security will turn back any illegal aliens trying to come into the country and send them back to where they came from, rather than detain them.

These rules went into effect at midnight Friday.

The Trump Administration’s goal is to stop the spread of COVID-19. The president doesn’t want to take the chance that aliens entering the country might spread the virus if they’re infected or contract it from someone already here.

Hospitals are currently preparing for medical supply shortages. The commander-in-chief is ensuring those resources are used to save Americans, not illegals.
