Note that Mexico is not among Countries that are blocked admittance for our safety. Even though all of the variants Biden is concerned about in the E.O. have discovered in Mexico. Locations B.1.1.7 and B.1.. B.1.1.2 8.1 Found in Mexico
Mexico’s President was just diagnosed with Covid, 6.5 hours AFTER he had flown commercially. The Covid threat from our Southern Border is just as significant, if not more so than the UK and Africa threat. If “protecting us” from the Covid variants is Biden’s reasoning for suspending some European travelers, why hasn’t Biden locked down the Southern Border to protect us?
