IMMIGRANTS: Pressing questions

| February 21, 2021 1:00 AM

So now President Biden wants to allow 25,000 immigrants into the Untied States that are at the southern border. I have many questions for President Biden.

Are those 25,000 going to be tested for COVID-19 before entry? If so, who is going to pay for it? If I, as a U.S. citizen, travel to another country before I can re-enter my own country, I have to have a negative COVID test at my own expense which could cost me up to $250.

With the strong demand for the COVID-19 vaccine among U.S. citizens, where do these newly admitted stand in line for this vaccine? Are they going to jump ahead of U.S. citizens? What about housing? We have veterans on the streets. Is President Biden going to take care of the veterans first? This does not even touch on the subject of education, health care and employment?
