Yankees had better stay home, or they'll face the National Guard

You can't make this up.

Well, truth is stranger than fiction, as someone said.

Let's check out what Rhode Island is up to:

On Saturday, the National Guard will help them conduct house-to-house searches to find people who traveled from New York and demand 14 days of self-quarantine.

"Right now we have a pinpointed risk," Governor Gina Raimondo said.  "That risk is called New York City."

New York is the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S., on Friday reporting a total of 44,000 cases.

Rhode Island has just over 200, and it has begun an aggressive campaign to keep the virus out and New Yorkers contained, over objections from civil liberties advocates.

Raimondo, a Democrat, said she had consulted lawyers and said while she couldn't close the border, she felt confident she could enforce a quarantine.

Honestly, I understand what they are doing. They don't want New Yorkers to bring the coronavirus to what some call "Little Rhody" and others "The Ocean West."

I wonder what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and MSNBC will say about all of this!

On a more serious note, it is a sign of the times and how suddenly borders, and who comes into your state, are a major concern.

I wonder if Governor Raimondo will turn over any illegal aliens to ICE...
