“I saved you,” cried the woman
“And you’ve bitten me, but why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”

Fox News has learned that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is considering a plan that would turn away asylum seekers and anyone who has crossed the southern border illegally, in light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The idea is currently being developed by DHS staff, but there is still more work to do to be done, before it’s presented to President Trump for a final decision.
A DHS spokesperson told Fox News that the president has the authority to do whatever is necessary to protect the American public from this potentially deadly disease.
“President Trump is 100 percent committed to protecting the American people from coronavirus and all options are in the table,” the official said.
Trump has long been a strong proponent of stronger border security and has favored a targeted approach to limiting illegal immigration.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) falls under DHS and would be subject to carry out the directive if it were approved.
This news comes after the European Union (EU) chose to close the bloc’s borders to most foreigners, on Tuesday.
The ban is expected to last for at least 30 days, with citizens of the United Kingdom, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland likely being exempt.
Considering that those who cross our Southern Border illegally are, in fact, breaking our laws by doing so, I have no problem with escorting them immediately back across the border to Mexico.
Over the past couple of decades, a lot of American Taxpayer money has been spent taking care of illegals, both minors and adults, who have entered our country carrying disease with them.
Back in 2015, Former President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) allowed a lot of illegal minors carrying infectious diseases like measles to cross our borders.
Obama then spirited the minors away to military bases across the country from where they would be inserted into American communities.
At the time, the Oxford Journals reported that
Risk factors for these infections include limited access to safe food and water, overcrowding, poor nutrition, and exposure to insect vectors. The infections noted in immigrants from Latin America partly reflect these exposures. For example, fecal contamination is common and results in an increased risk for enteric infections. Animal husbandry practices are less safe in Latin America than in the United States, and meat products are often sold informally without screening for parasites having been done. Milk products may not be pasteurized. Overcrowding and poor nutrition may amplify transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other respiratory pathogens. These exposures may continue after immigration to the United States.
A number of diseases that are common in Latin America are rarely diagnosed in the United States. Diarrhea due to toxigenic Escherichia coli is common among residents of and travelers to Latin America. However, toxigenic E. coli diarrhea is rarely recognized in immigrants because of the short incubation period and the limited duration of the illness. Chagas’ disease is rarely diagnosed in immigrants. This may reflect the low prevalence of Chagas’ disease in Mexico, the birthplace of most immigrants to the United States. Confusion of Chagas’ disease with other causes of heart disease is a problem. It is also possible that, because of the long period when individuals with Chagas’ disease are asymptomatic, the number of cases diagnosed may increase with time. Hansen’s disease (formerly known as leprosy) is endemic in Latin America. Although it has a characteristic presentation (hypoesthesia and skin lesions), its incidence is very low in Mexico and Central America, and the disease is uncommon in Latin American immigrants.
Now, consider, if you will, the pestilence of Latin America serving as an incubator for the Chinese Coronavirus, a virtual stewpot of pestilence which will fortify and intensify the virus itself until it comes across our border being transported by unsuspecting illegal aliens.
I fully support closing our Southern Border.
Being caring and compassionate is one thing.
Willingly allowing Pestilence, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, into America is another thing entirely.
And, it is a very stupid idea.
