Let's say we close the borders and it works.

We'll become the only healthy nation and everybody will try to break in in massive waves like zombie movies.👻😈


Yea, us and North Korea.

Yes, let's build a wall between the US and China. China will pay for it!

What concerns me is the number of Americans who can't take off work, or afford to see a doctor if they get it. That's how you turn a small number of infected people into a pandemic. Fix our medical system.


Rather pointless comment since the virus doesn't show any initial symptoms.

You are aware we dont border China?? So cant see how this is even relative to people crossing the border.


Suppose that the virus spreads far enough to reach a migrant caravan of thousands trying to travel through Mexico, to the US. No the hard to see.

I believe the OP was talking about this hypothetical possibility, especially considering that at least right now the virus is spread through contact.

This is funny because during the opium wars the entire west was forcing China to open trade and borders. Now a disease comes everyone is calling Chinese to shut borders.

You can build a 2000000 foot wall but we are always going to let Americans , greencard holders, and students back in... even if they are Asian.
This is America. Not a concentration camp.


There are a lot of groups hiding in America would wish to exterminate the Yellow race just like the Colonization of America itself. They uses any kind of propaganda to blame the Chinese first. Nazi's are a part of it and helping the agenda like mad because they are the most easily manipulated thinking white are the superior ones. If you want too see more truth about it you can look at birth rates within Westernized countries of Asia in comparison. The mad will always be mad until they are executed.

From reading some of the replies to the OP it seems that the left is taking a Pro killer flu stance. Thank God Trump is going to win again.

"Everyone but me is stupid..."

replace most utterances online with the above phrase and it would likely pertain to the discussion, true or not; as well as greatly abbreviating the internet.

As far as pandemics influencing people's minds about immigration and it's particulars, this pandemic started with regular business travel and so relating it to this topic is moot ... at best.

Are we ready for utopian ideals? Nope.

Should we do them anyway? That's a better discussion imo ... because (see the first phrase in this reply).

This also sorta reminds me of the trope "all immigrants are dirty and contagious" that is a little more common in certain regions of the US ... curiously, or not, the regions where that thought is more common are the ones least likley to get any actual immigrants moving there.

Are you saying that pointing out that China is the country of origin of a potentially pandemic killer virus is racist?

Because THIS: "They uses any kind of propaganda to blame the Chinese first."...sounds like you are.

tHe LeFt is stating that airborne viruses don't care about borders, and we don't have an influx of Chinese people coming over the border to bring the virus here. That's a long swim.

US border security and coronavirus have nothing to do with each other.

I know plenty of hard working Americans that go to main land China for work reasons all the time. People travel to China and Hong Kong all the time!
Don’t take the bait just yet. We’ve seen this before!
I need my shirt for “I survived Ebola” “I survived Swine Flu” “ I survived Bird Flu”, and the new one,

“ I SURVIVED KUNG FLU “!!!!!!!!

So "tHe LeFt" has something in common with the virus.

Well we do have a crap ton of students returning this week from China. That’s not the issue, we need to monitor and regulate borders, most nations do it every day.

The left needs to stop being so short sighted with just letting people in and letting them vote and get better supportive benefits than Americans who need those programs. Instead they just let them in and let the system handle it.

You are correct about the public health issues created by this and the working poor in our nation. Without a supporting public health system that also educates these population groups, we will eventually face a public health crisis in the nation.

Elevating groups through supportive health care and education programs will elevate their standard of living, improve their health and lower birth rates, it’s just what happens. This will reduce strain on the system. Eventually we could see some type of hybrid healthcare system with public buckets that people can select from that compete with one another and have transparency with prices and procedures. These can be supplemented with private insurance from employers or purchased programs. Initial costs will be high and they will decrease as the system stabilizes, hopefully. You have to eliminate lobbying first, I don’t see universal healthcare working here, it’s too broad and/or restrictive.

I am a huge fan of the Israeli healthcare system and if I remember correctly, Australia also offers a hybrid program but I’m not too familiar with theirs.

I'm fine with border security. I just want an easier path to legal citizenship. It's the answer to the problem. The fact is, though, that US border security has NOTHING to do with coronavirus, and this thread is stupid. The Trump answer to border security will be as effective against illegal immigrants as it is against an airborne virus. Not even a little bit. Neither one of them care about walls.

Do you think the people of China's bordering countries are glad the Chinese population doesn't have unlimited and unfettered access to their countries right now?

Hint: The answer is 'YES'.

That is a low blow. Dealing with deadly virus coming into our countries is a world away from dealing with not letting in people that are seeking sanctuary. So low.

If a deadly virus originated in Mexico, and we had the open borders that the leftists so desire, it would devastate our own nation with the same impact.

But I've yet to see an open-borders proponent advocate for the United States as an individual nation either.

So there is that.

It will be if there is a major problem. your citizenship ends where national security begins.
