Border Security

Deporting COVID(+) people works against our national security

I just read in Time Magazine that the U.S. is deporting people with coronavirus to places like Guatemala that had closed their borders and mainly kept coronavirus out. Now we're introducing it, massively--Guatemala didn't want to accept people back, for its own well-being at this point, and we basically forced them to. Coronavirus can destroy poor countries even worse than it's destroying ours, so we need to think long-term. If coronavirus gets a foothold there, and families and communities are destroyed and the Guatemalan economy becomes even more of a mess than it is now, that will just drive more people to immigrate in the future. So we should think smart and put a hold on deportations to countries that otherwise have a chance of preventing outbreaks.
