Is White House press secretary Jen Psaki serious when she claims that illegal migrants don’t need proof of vaccination because they’re not intending to stay? That is totally asinine.

Migrants have every intention of remaining; otherwise they would not have made the long, dangerous trek here. But even if they are not intending to stay, they are in fact travelers. And those who are COVID-19-infected, along with the unvaccinated, pose a serious threat to all they encounter.

llegal migrants are a contributing factor to the surge in COVID-19 cases. They are a menace to the health, safety and welfare of our communities. And those who are not vaccinated do not belong in our country.

The same draconian measures that apply to Americans should apply to illegal migrants. We are in the midst of a deadly pandemic and there is no room for a double standard.
