The bumbling Biden border policy is drawing fire from people who want illegal immigrants to be tested for COVID-19 before entering the United States and demand that the administration get local approval before dumping them in their backyards.
In a survey for the National Sheriffs’ Association, which has been critical of the planning to handle the new surge in illegal immigrants, people said they want the laws governing immigration enforced, a rejection of the revived Obama-era “catch and release” policy.
They also want migrants tested for the coronavirus and to undergo DNA tests that would prove their claims of having relatives in the U.S.
And with the administration already releasing thousands of illegal immigrants in the U.S., taken to states from Florida to Michigan, the poll done by Tipp Insights found that 79% of respondents want President Joe Biden’s team to get local approval before shipping migrants to their towns.
“Almost eight out of ten people believe it is also critical that authorities inform and obtain the approval of elected community leaders before relocating migrants from the border to communities across the country. One-half think it is very important, while 29 percent believe it is somewhat important,” the analysis said.
