Democrats Discover Border Security – Rhode Island Governor Orders National Guard Checkpoints To Protect Against New Yorkers…

Apparently democrat governors are discovering that border security might be important after all…. at least when it comes to quarantining pesky undesirables.  Hypocrisy, thy name is:

(source)

Yes America, Democrat governors are now placing their national guard troops at the borders to question travelers about their origination… “papers please.”

[Rhode Island] – Governor Gina Raimondo announced. Starting immediately, anyone coming into the state from New York state will be mandated to self-quarantine for 14 days, the governor said.

“No matter how you come to Rhode Island – bus, car, train, plane – you are ordered to quarantine for 14 days,” Raimondo said. “In my judgement this is the most prudent form of action in light of the crisis.”

Members of the National Guard will be stationed at train and bus stations to gather the contact information of anyone coming in from New York. In addition, the Rhode Island State Police will station troopers at the state border to flag down vehicles with New York license plates. The information collected will be used only for contact tracing by the Rhode Island Department of Health, Raimondo said.

“This is different. This is unusual. This is radical,” Raimondo said. “I don’t want anyone to panic. If anything, Rhode Islanders should breathe a sigh of relief. We are doing things to keep ourselves safe.”  (read more)

Keeping tens-of-thousands of migrant travelers from central America and Mexico out of the United States is an abomination to the humanitarian interests of our nation.  However, allowing Americans to cross state borders during a national health emergency is apparently a bridge too far.

One of the under-appreciated benefits of this COVID-19 crisis, is exposing the hypocrisy of the limo-liberal elite.   Notice how quickly a Democrat can turn totalitarian? I digress….

Funny how it was only a few short months ago when Russia, Russia, Russia hype was declared to be influencing the national political conversation, while these same democrat governors were quoting the statue of Liberty.  Alas….

“Papers please comrade”…

    I see no contradiction. Both open borders and unconstitutional control interstate travel across state borders together, make simple sense when observed thorough the prism of globalism.

    Global governance requires that America’s sovereignty and Bill of Rights be eaten away from within – with the full support and ignorance of a public eager to sacrifice their liberty to the State.

  2. The citizens of every State have the unrestricted right to freely pass into any other State,

    This is once again simply a test of how many liberties the American people will freely give up when they have been told to be frightened. It is shocking how much they are willing to give up.

    Duly edited to suit the occasion:

    “[…] but after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine its policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliamentary system or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is to tell them that the common cold has turned into a terrible contagion, and denounce the non-believers for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.”
    – Hermann Göering

    There is actually no hard epidemiological science to back up these actions nor these claims: the country’s leaders are simply taking the opportunity to do it. To see if they can.

    • TradeBait, Wonderful!!! For decades New Yorker’s have been told that New York is the center of the world and they believe it.Suddenly they are finding out that the country runs better without them. Plus, they are the cause of the spread of this china blue virus because of their own selfishness and self-importance. New York & CA will be closed longer than the center of the country, get used to it dem land, the rest of the country really doesn’t need you.

        Please remember California has no truly local virus spread. We took in U.S. citizens stuck on infected cruise ships and other travelers. Many felt we should not have taken them in to the country’s most populous state. On the other hand, it was a humanitarian but foolish thing to do. We didn’t have to do it. While we have had consequent infections, it has worked out for the most part well. Remember we took in 3500 passengers from a single cruise ship in Oakland. We’ll soon see if any states take in that many infected persons. Some were taken and quarantined at MCAS in San Diego. That operation was so successful it was shut down this week with the last ‘passenger’ released this week. How’s New York doing?

    Gino Raimondo is a disaster. Indoctrinated by Hah-vud, Yale, and OxFraud, she’s owned by Bloomberg. Her allegiance is to NY and LA leftists, not the citizens of her native RI.

    As state treasurer, she lied, falsely claiming the RI State Retirees’ Pension fund would collapse unless she discontinued COLAs. Knowing that withholding contractually owed COLAs from retirees was illegal, she conned the legislature into changing the laws.

    She withheld the COLA monies but she did not put them back into the pension fund which supposedly was about to collapse.

    Instead, she handed those monies to NY hedge fund crooks for ten years, no annual reports, no ability to withdraw the funds, along with another one percent of the fund in exchange for campaign contributions.

    Completely corrupt, and stupid despite her much ballyhooed education.

    Let me give another perspective. We live in Florida. My daughter works for a large resort community
    (won’t share the name) as LP. Along with a huge hotel, the property has villas, some privately owned (lived in by owners or rented/leased to travellers), others owned by the property and are rented/leased. Yes, they closed the hotel, but don’t have control over the 100% of the property. What she began noticing last week was an abundance of vehicles with NY, NJ and CT tags checking into the resort. Of course, that does not include the ones flying in on private planes. As LP any issue that happens on the property her group are first responders. Any injury, any sickness her group has to show up.
    Now, I don’t begrudge anyone who lives in those states wanting to protect their families and get them to an area that seems “safer”. Yes, we are in an area that has low positive virus cases and WE WANT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY! Gov. DeSantis ordered last week anyone traveling to FL from these area MUST self-quarantine for 14 days, but this is hard to enforce for travelers in cars or private planes. Unfortunately, some of these individuals act like this does not apply to them. All it will take is a few of these elites not knowing they are infected or to simply be a carrier to spread the virus to people in the nearby towns and it’s off to the races.

      Thats what I keep wondering: how is the 14 day quarantine enforced? It makes for good optics, but how do they keep track of all of these people, especially in Florida where THOUSANDS are coming in daily…do they just call them and ask them if they are doing the self quarantine? Crazy.

        “…how is the 14 day quarantine enforced?”

        As far as I can see, it’s not – which makes the entire concept irrelevant.

        And, aside from the initial reasoning, say there is a family of four who is “quarantined” and on the 13th day, one of them has a positive test result, with minor symptoms. If the quarantine is a real thing, it follows that a separate 14 day quarantine now begins for a different group of 3 within the same family.

        Of course, math is hard, so I suppose the smart alecks who are telling everybody what they can do and can’t do haven’t gotten around to the required adding and subtracting.

        And on top of everything else, we know that 50% of the things being directed and imposed are not reality-based, and 80% of the people directing and imposing are not to be believed. So we can only hope that we are successful in guessing which things really matter.

          My 34 yr old nephew lives in NYC, he has been in quarantine and working from home since end of February when he came home from a trip to England and Italy.
          He was freaked out about the virus in late Feb. when his employer made anyone who had been in those countries self quarantine, where he remains to this day.
          He works for Korean owned Samsung.
          So, this idiocy has been going on for over a month!
          He can’t stand NY Gov Cuomo and he is a college created liberal.
          He is not happy with this, he is bored and lonely. duh…
          This is a disaster for single people &/or those who do not do well without any outside interaction with people.
          This is government created suffering, we cannot keep this up for another 8 weeks.

    Keep in mind “elites” never consider anything necessary until it physically impacts them. The people who run the democrat controlled states and municipalities consider themselves elites above the the rest of the “deplorables”.

    They still do not see US border issues as negative but as a positive as in votes as well as source to demand more Federal hand-outs.
