Trump: Undocumented Immigrants Can Get Coronavirus Test Without Fear

March 23, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

Undocumented immigrants can be tested for coronavirus without fear of arrest or deportation, President Donald Trump said on Sunday, The Hill reported.

Due to the president’s emphasis in office on clamping down on immigration and warning of how migrants endanger society, Trump was asked if undocumented immigrants could be tested without being afraid of repercussions.

“The answer is yes, we will do those tests,” Trump said during a White House briefing. “Because I think it’s important we test that person, and we don’t want to send that person back into wherever we’re going to be sending that person.”

At the briefing, Vice President Mike Pence said that, except in exceptional circumstances, agents will not target emergency rooms or health clinics to look for undocumented immigrants, according to guidelines issued by that Customs and Border Protection.

Trump had initially deferred the question to Surgeon General Jerome Adams, who said it is important from a public health perspective that everyone with symptoms should be tested, emphasizing that the virus “doesn’t judge based on where you’re from,” Yahoo reported.

Experts in public health have insisted on expanded coronavirus testing so that officials can better identify who needs to quarantine in order to slow down the spread of the disease, according to The Hill.

    Mr. President, please deport all illegals. They are stealing outgoing mail and everything else they can find. Very bad people. They will destroy our country as they did theirs. Over population, over use of all resources. Food prices have gone up tremendously since their invasion has been taking place. They get everything free: food, health care, housing, education. The Dems have elevated them above us. We are slaves just to support them. Am I predigest, yes. I want our country for our future

    You get no argument here about kick back all the border jumpers who should never been allowed to stay but there are hoards of them in an open underground society now. Open because they are better protected than you or I. Underground because they are more likely to be comfortable with those similar to themselves and for some time will only mingle as needed, because our nice Demos have told them to fear the Gringos who want to throw them back. The Demos could not have planned it better.
    They thrive on crisis, especially when there is a bill that is critically needed involved. They make outrageous additions, hardly ever related in any way to the problem, and when the GOP resists idiocy and waste scream they are holding it up. Now we have a wonderful reservoir of contagion to restart the whole mess again. THE ONLY CHOICE IS TO DIAGNOSE AND TREAT THEM IN IMMUNITY, EVEN PROVIDE THE VACCINATIONS IF THEY BECOME AVAILABLE. THANK YOU TO THE PATRIOTIC, I CAN FEEL YOUR PAIN AND WE ARE CONCERNED FOR THE OPRESSED RACES DEMOS. OUR EVER FAITHFUL DEMOLISHERS OF AMERICA! The true purveyors of degradation and oppression.
