Even though some states support illegal migrants in the U.S., one state doesn’t want people crossing over the southern border.
California is well known for promoting border crossings but it appears the tone is now changed.
A total of 22,088 COVID-19 cases in Mexico have been reported as of May 2nd. Now southern California officials are seeking aid in reducing cases in the U.S. that are originating from border crossings.
President Trump didn’t resist taking to Twitter to inform his supporters. Trump tweeted this:
Mexico is sadly experiencing very big CoronaVirus problems, and now California, get this, doesn’t want people coming over the Southern Border. A Classic! They are sooo lucky that I am their President. Border is very tight and the Wall is rapidly being built!

A letter was sent to Vice President Mike Pence by San Diego County’s Third District supervisor, Kristin Gaspar. The letter was sent in April and stated that medical professionals were “increasingly worried about the rapid spread of COVID-19 in northern Mexico.”
The letter went on to say that there had been “a sudden influx of critically ill patients from Mexico” in Chula Vista, California.
Gaspar also asked for senior Trump administration officials to speak with local hospital executives and medical professionals to address the issue at hand.
Daniel Sharp, who is HealthCare COVID‐19 Strategic Response Executive Consultant and Chris Van Gorder, who is Scripps Health President and CEO jointly wrote a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf asking them for help in dealing with coronavirus cases at the southern border.
The Otay Mesa port of entry is closed to pedestrians and vehicles at night as of Sunday.
The U.S. and Mexico’s agreed on March 21st to limit travel across the border to essential traffic only so there is a decreased amount of travel in that area.
Even with that order in place, tens of thousands of people cross the San Ysidro-Tijuana border every day according to the letter authored by Van Gorder and Gross.
The letter states, “Today, coronavirus cases are increasing at rates exceedingly faster among border communities compared to the rest of San Diego County.”
Once again Trump seems to have gotten it right. In fact, now according to the letter, border crossings made by those with work visas or U.S. citizens living in Mexico are not wanted in the Democratic state.
I wonder what happened to California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom’s sanctuary policies? What happened to protecting illegal immigrants from being deported by federal authorities?
California no longer wants legal or illegal migrants?
Well, I guess Hell just froze over because the Democrats have changed their minds about the southern border.
