This is a yes or no poll. Either the Democrats are interested or are not interested in protecting Americans against Covid!

There is no Other. The Democrats either are or are not interested in protecting we the people from Covid!

To be more specific... it seems that the Democrats are NOT interested in ensuring our safety against Covid... otherwise they would have voted for this bill which they all voted against!

Democrats Vote AGAINST COVID Tests for Illegal Immigrants Entering U.S.

You would think that the same people who are for masking your kids and segregating society by vaccine status would be for Illegal Immigrants receiving a COVID test before being released… WRONG!
 
Representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa) introduced legislation on Wednesday that would have required migrants to have a negative COVID-19 test before being released from Customs and Border Protection detention. House Democrats voted against the legislation.
 
“Today, I offered my REACT Act on the House floor, which would require DHS to give a COVID test to everyone crossing our border illegally,” Meeks tweeted.
 
In addition, she said that the “The majority chose to block this commonsense bill that would ensure the health and safety of border patrol and border communities,”

Was it a stand alone bill, or did it have any "poison pills" in it that ensured Democrats could not vote for it, in order to grandstand about how "The demoncrats voted down this bill"? And it's not slur on either side, they both do it. If it was a stand alone bill with no add-ons that would kill it, then they should have voted for it, hands down.

Introduced in House (03/16/2021)
Requiring Every Alien Receive a COVID-19 Test Act or the REACT Act
 
This bill requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to administer a COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus disease 2019) test and receive a negative result before releasing an alien in certain instances.
 
Specifically, DHS must receive a negative test result before an inadmissible alien may be released from custody or placed in an alternative to detention program, if that release or placement takes place within 30 days of that alien's entry into the United States.
 
?
It was introduced Mar 16, 2021 and voted down!
 
Go figure!

Yeah, that one should have been passed, by all in Congress.

Yes and no. I think they want the threat to end or lessen, but they are also using it for political ends.  They aren’t unhappy they can continue to use Covid for more power and control.

It hasn't been voted   As far as I-can find it is in Committee right now.

It was submitted in Mar 2021. We are now in Oct 2021... 7 months later.

It should have already been passed.

It's common sense. It's short. It doesn't have any pork or poison in it. It should have been passed in Mar 2021 and sent to the Senate.

It's now Oct 2021... and it hasn't been passed in the House!

WHY?

That's terribly sad to say the least.

They should want the threat to end and do everything in their power to help keep it under control to bring it to an end but they don't.

Which means that they're happy to continue spreading Covid to red states where they send these more than likely Covid positive illegals. And that is political treason!

Politics shouldn't enter this equation what so ever.

This bill should have been passed in March, sent to the Senate and then passed into law. 

But now... 7 months and millions of illegals released within our borders... many with Covid... they still haven't passed this simple bill.

Bottom line: They don't give a damn about We The People and are only interested in keeping their control and power! A sad state of affairs for our country!
