Now that many are returning to classrooms, does it worry anyone that thousands are coming into the country after testing positive for Covid and not even being quarantined or detained?

I’m more worried about the ‘Mericans who selfishly refuse to follow COVID guidelines. I am more worried about media that spreads conspiracies, disinformation, and resentment. I worry about the children whose teachers will see them as less than fully human b/c their country of origin. Or perceived as other than fully American.
Immigrants are, above all human beings fleeing horrific conditions. As a nation, I pray we do better before WW2, and the last 4 years.

The media hasn’t really spread any stories about the immigration facilities because the media has been banned from the facilities which has never happened in the past. The videos and stories by border patrol that have come out are apalling.. Children are being forced to lie on the floor with tinfoil blankets and not enough food or clean water. Many have not been able to bathe at all. One facility in Texas which was built to hold 200 has 6000 in it. Your comment about treating kids as less than human because they are immigrants does not even hold a modicum of truth. That sounds just like a typical lie that liberals make up. If you have any instance at all of this happening anywhere anytime I will listen. You’re probably one of the people who cried out against the former administration keeping children in cages and put up the picture of kids and facilities from a completely different administration claiming it was current. We all need to be concerned with solutions and not just spreading more just information as you have here.

In response to California HS, the far left is spreading propaganda and doing everything possible to silence those that will not comply with their increasingly tyrannical dictates. We are a nation of laws. Legal immigration is rational and lawful. Open borders is not. The Federal Government is violating it’s responsibility to protect our borders.

Minors are being put in facilities that do not meet even basic human rights due to overcrowding, lack of security....and....we have a 'man camp' that has been turned in to a detention facility for unaccompanied minors (12-17 year old males) that does not even have potable (drinkable) water and it is not recommended that they even bathe in that water. How is that humane? Is this why the current administration is denying access?

It sure does.

I live right on the border. I go through a Border Patrol checkpoint every day on the way to school. There is nothing I can do about any of it.

Thousands coming from where? Can you be more specific? People come into our country everyday.

I’m fully vaccinated, but I am concerned Ed about my friends, family and students who are not.

Are they entering legally? If not, how can we gather reliable statistics on the matter? Use common sense.

Yes, common sense dictates some of those entering the country will be positive. I was responding to the original poster who stated thousands are entering the country after testing positive. Don’t throw out random statistics if you don’t have any evidence.

Absolutely beyond scared

I’m more worried about the fact that there are so many kids being trafficked in, that this state is searching for foster families to take 26+ kids (FACT)! That’s way scarier to me than Covid - and I’m an at-risk teacher.

Confirming that range of estimates from the association is outside the scope of this fact check. There were 479 positive cases among detainees in the custody of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as of March 12, 2021, out of the total 14,051 people detained, according to the agency’s latest statistics. ICE arrests and detains people who may have entered the country legally, but then broken the law or are foreign fugitives. The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol does not publish COVID-19 statistics for immigrants (www.ice.gov/coronavirus, here).
