In 60 Seconds: COVID And Safe Borders

*PDF Download: In 60 Seconds – Covid and Safe Borders

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every aspect of life. As Americans eagerly long for a return to normal life, the Biden administration is risking greater spread of not only COVID-19 but it’s variants. Their inconsistent policies regarding COVID-19 for those who enter the US by land puts all of us, including the migrants, at greater risk.

Here’s the issue in 60 seconds: 

What’s at Stake

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every aspect of life. As Americans eagerly long
for a return to normal life, the Biden administration is risking greater spread of not only
COVID-19 but it’s variants. Their inconsistent policies regarding COVID-19 for those
who enter the US by land puts all of us, including the migrants, at greater risk.

While there are strict COVID-19 policies for those entering the United States via air
travel, those who enter the U.S. via land, including those crossing the border illegally,
do not face these same requirements.

This puts migrant families and U.S. citizens at risk and threatens to reverse our
progress in the fight against COVID-19.

It also undermines the sacrifices we have and continue to make—the lost jobs,
businesses, classroom time, sports, team spirit, hugs, get togethers, human
companionship.

The Way Forward

We all want to fight the COVID-19 pandemic as effectively as possible. The Biden
administration should implement safe, sensible, and consistent border controls,
specifically aimed at controlling the spread of COVID-19 and its potential variants, so
that we can defeat the pandemic and safely reopen our economy and society.

With the emergence of new variants that are potentially resistant to existing vaccines
and could set us back in our fight against COVID-19, it is even MORE critical that we
have border control.

This isn’t a political issue; it’s a matter of public health.
