Trump mulls rule to block Americans returning from Mexico if they’re suspected of having virus

WASHINGTON, DC -- President Trump may allow border agents to stop Americans suspected of having coronavirus from returning to the U.S. from Mexico, the New York Times reported Monday afternoon.

The Trump administration has asked various federal agencies for their input on the proposed new rule within 24 hours, the Times indicated.

It was unclear how quickly the draft regulation might be finalized and put into place.


But if adopted, it would expand the authority of border officials during the pandemic - allowing them to deny both American citizens and legal residents re-entry into the U.S. as they seek to cross back from Mexico.

It would also mark the latest attempt by the administration to seal off the Mexican border, citing virus fears. In March, the administration invoked a public health law to swiftly remove migrants, including children, who are apprehended at the border. That action, including a series of other travel restrictions, has been extended over the course of the pandemic.

Previous travel restrictions imposed by the administration during the pandemic have excluded U.S. citizens and legal residents. For example, the U.S. limited non-essential travel at land ports of entry with Canada and Mexico. Americans cross the borders regularly for a range of reasons, including work, attending school, visiting family and tourism.

Any move targeting U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, in particular, is likely to face legal challenges. In the wake of the Times report Monday, the American Civil Liberties Union immediately dubbed the move "unconstitutional."

"The Trump administration has rolled out one border ban after another — most recently on children and asylum seekers — using Covid-19 as an excuse, while failing abysmally to get the virus under control in the United States," said Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, in a statement.

"The rumored order would be another grave error in a year that has already seen far too many," Jadwat added.

The U.S. outpaces other countries in coronavirus cases, including Mexico and Canada, which have 480,278 and 122,053 cases, respectively.

It makes for great headlines to show how on top of stopping CV he was. 5.3 mil with 169k deaths so far, That's his version of winning. :cool:
Unlike you, I don't blame our great POTUS for the Chinese virus or its effects, I blame China. President Trump actually was out in front of the Chinese virus banning flights and people from China back in January while the democRATS and liberals were calling him a racist and xenophobe for his efforts. Like most snowflakes, you love to change facts to fit your narrative.

In front of the CV, LOL
It's too bad he thought that's all he had to do was to stop some of the Chinese. 40k still came here after he closed the door.

The reality is most of the CV cases that infected the US came from Europe after the visitors came from Asia to Europe.
There are plenty of sources to back this fact up.

Oh by the way he is a xenophobe and many other nasty conceptions and opinions people like him believe in.

He thinks about and treats women so well. He's just a nasty old man.

I didn't like him or his family much before 2016 and nothing he has done has changed my view of him.

But you can keep drinking the wacko Kool aide he serves.
It will be all over soon.

The guy is officially brain dead. It's one thing to just say you like or support someone but to completely rationalize or justify his actions as normal behavior defies all logic. There is definitely some aspect of a cult here. I don't ever recall seeing Obama flags flying out the back of people's cars, Obama boat rallies, Obama rallies of any kind... It's just strange time to be alive. Tell me you like Trump, don't try and tell me he's normal or forward thinking.

I like President Trump and he is a brilliant man. He is not normal. He is a forward thinking genius. He is a billionaire and the most powerful person in the world. Can you come even close to that? Of course you can't. You are just a hater like all the rest and will not ever give him credit for all the great things he has done. The reason we know these are true, is people like you joe, who seethe at the thought of him being the POTUS and Making America Great Again.

The market and real estate are the two biggest FIXED socialist programs for rich people in the history of the world. They do NOT accurately measure the success and well being of America. I have principles that I've stood on my whole life and none of them are MONEY.
