Why should we be inviting immigrants into a country with a dangerous virus?

Former secretary of state Madeleine Albright was out on Tuesday calling President Trump's order to temporarily stop immigration un-American.  ABC and others are calling it xenophobic.

This is nothing new.  Trump has been called xenophobic and racist for years, no matter what he does.  Leftists who seek to destroy Trump always play these cards.  Heck, Trump was called xenophobic for sensibly shutting down travel from China and calling the virus the Chinese virus because it came from there.

Wouldn't it be cruel and un-American to invite people from other countries in when they wouldn't be able to go to work, eat, go to the dentist, get their hair cut, or most other things until we get a vaccine that ensures that no one will ever get sick and die again?  After all, that is what we are doing to the people who live here.  We would tell them they can't get "elective" surgery unless they need an abortion.  Why would we want people to come in when COVID-19 is so dangerous?

Isn't it un-American to shut down the entire country when thirty percent of the deaths are around New York and twenty percent are in nursing homes?

Isn't it time to summarize a few of the Democrats main policies?

We should have open borders for illegals, but we should prevent citizens from having the freedom to go where they want.

We should enforce dictatorial rules to stay six feet apart, to wear masks, and not to have gatherings of more than ten people, but sanctuary cities and states should not enforce immigration laws that Congress passed.

It is oppressive and racist to require photo IDs to vote, but it may be necessary to test everyone's blood to see if he has had the virus so he would qualify for an ID to allow him to go out, mingle, and work.

I wonder why there are protests.  It must be zealots who like freedom and seek to allow America to survive as it always has, as a capitalist, free society, instead of being controlled by dictatorial politicians.

Everything we need to know about Democrat thinking can be summed up by two Democrat governors.  The governor of New Jersey said the Constitution is above his pay grade when he set his dictatorial rules, and the governor of Minnesota said he didn't understand Trump's two-word tweet "liberate Minnesota."  Anyone who doesn't understand that tweet is not qualified to oversee anything in the United States.
