    From: Biden requiring stricter COVID testing of legal travelers even as illegal immigrants have gotten a pass

    "President Biden's enhanced winter COVID-19 strategy that will be announced Thursday will require every traveler entering the country, including returning U.S. citizens, to be tested one day before boarding their flight, according to the CDC. The rule will also apply to vaccinated travelers, who previously were only required to show a negative test no more than three days before their flight."

    In addition Biden plans to implement other restrictions on entry into the US
    Biden prepares plan requiring foreign travelers to be vaccinated amid border crisis

    Now riddle me this.
    Is it not more likely that those entering the country by crossing the border on foot more likely to be unvaccinated thus more likley be infected with any and all strains of Covid-19?

    Maybe. What you think won't decide what is the case.

    Did you just accidentally make an argument against detention for irregular border crossers?

    And claim that a person can be infected with over as I understand it 1000+ variants. The level of scientific understanding is strong in this OP poster.

    Wonder why crossing the border at foot create more covid sickness than hundreds of airplanes landing with potentially sick travelers :confused:

    I think the issue the whole world trying to find answer to is, how do we stop covid from spreading more. Closing air trafic could be one of them.

    Mainly because those flying into the US can afford to fly and the odds are that they are vaccinated, whereas those crossing the border by shankmare are not.

    Biden has some conflicting goals....easing entry for illegals,
    but enhancing Covid security. The compromise won't be pretty.

    The OP uses two "newscasts" from Fox, so please beware as they love to put out "alternative facts". And to quote DeSantis as supposedly being an objective source on immigration is so utterly laughable, especially as he's been spouting bat-shirt crazy nonsense so as to probably run in 2024 if Trump decides not to.

    Cost benefit analysis goes into all such.

    Air travellerscare screened with some success.
    The two million or whatever who made visaless entry since covid are not screened and i imagine very few are caccinated.
