Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Residents in Sonora, south of the US state of Arizona, have promised to block traffic into Mexico for a second day after closing a checkpoint for hours on Wednesday. They wore face masks and held signs telling Americans to "stay at home".

Mexico has fewer than 500 confirmed Covid-19 cases and the US over 65,000. The border is supposed to be closed to all except "essential" business, but protesters said there has been little enforcement and no testing by authorities.

The group has called for enforcement of the crossing ban on all US or Mexican citizens for tourism or medical reasons, including those who cross the border every day to attend school or work in the US.

Authorities must also conduct medical testing on Mexicans deported from the US, they said.

More like poetic justice. Our nation rejected those running from gangs, etc. but now we are being rejected for running from a virus.
Poetic justice.

So when Chinese come here and spread this,
All the Deplorables blame China.

So if Americans go to Mexico and spread this,
Is JeffJ going to blame America?

YOU may have.

WE have not. I don't see anywhere in America embracing gangs except the FBI. They do embrace gangsters from time to time.

Maybe you are thinking of your Mother Russia?
