    Certainly Fox can be trusted to present clearly objective news, right?

    Have you been tested? I haven't. I know very few Americans that have been. We don't usually test people who have no symptoms.

    I haven't been, really, so I haven't seen what I trust are many other posts about the issue of using COVID-19 testing to help limit the spread of the pandemic.

    I can't imagine that you would only be using this issue as an excuse for xenophobic bigotry, so I can be sure that I'll see other evidence of your change of heart even if I haven't seen it for myself yet.

    In UK, tests are fairly easily available. You can get a test if you say you have symptoms

    I've had a PCP(?) test plus some self done tests

    So why are you complaining about people under a bridge not being tested? Oh, that's right, there's that ongoing relentless campaign of lies and idiocy to smear Biden with anything and everything in hopes it will help republicans in the mid term elections. Now I understand.

    The US is the wealthiest country on Earth.
    I'm sure they could spare a COVID test for every migrant at their border if they actually wanted to test them.

    But of course, untested migrants provide a convenient excuse to deny them the basic human right to request asylum.

    It's funny how people don't care too much about testing immigration hopefuls massed together under a bridge, yet will go all out condemning things like church gatherings and the like, screaming bloody hell over it.

    Do you think these people should be tested by US border agents or medical personnel, or would you prefer for them to remain untested, to have a legal justification to keep them out of the country?
