U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (R) has filed his “Protect American Nationals During Emergencies by Mitigating the Immigration Crisis Act” or PANDEMIC ACT, a measure that calls for the mandatory deportation of any and all illegal aliens currently being held in the U.S. due to the spreading Coronavirus.
According to Gaetz’s legislative office, whenever a national emergency is called because of “communicable disease” like the spread of the COVID-19 virus, those illegal aliens being detained on immigration concerns must be deported
Gaetz contends that his bill was introduced as a direct counter to the pro-Amnesty immigration bill filed in the House that would require illegal aliens being held to be released when a national emergency declared.
“Democrats are taking advantage of a national pandemic by working to advance their radical agenda at the expense of Americans’ safety and well-being. It is unconscionable that at a time when we should be working together as Americans, Democrats are working to socially engineer our country and advance their legislative priorities. The PANDEMIC Act puts Americans first by requiring that all illegal aliens be deported during a pandemic, ensuring our resources are used to benefit and protect American citizens,” said Congressman Matt Gaetz.
Just yesterday, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stated that the current pandemic “would be a terrible crisis to waste,” which lends to Gaetz’s remark that Democrats were only interested in advancing “their radical agenda the expense of Americans’ safety and well-being.”
“This would be a terrible crisis to waste,” said Hillary Clinton, as she talked about eventually getting to universal healthcare for Americans. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R) tweeted that Clinton admitted that Democrats were using the “Coronavirus crisis” for political gain and to “advance their radical socialist agenda.”
