Sen. Marshall Amendment Halts Illegal Migrants from Entering U.S. Without Negative COVID Test

(Washington, D.C., August 11, 2021) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. will force a vote on an amendment to the Democrats’ multi-trillion dollar, reckless tax and spend budget RESOLUTION to prohibit the transportation of migrants who have not received a negative COVID test. This resolution also ensures resources are provided for testing and treatment of migrants at the border and for quarantining those who test positive for COVID. Senator Marshall’s amendment is in response to the ongoing health crisis at the southern border, where thousands of illegal immigrants with COVID are being dispersed to communities across the country.

“This Administration’s policies of an open border and mass amnesty have created a humanitarian crisis, a national security crisis, and health crisis. At a time when politicians and bureaucrats are reinstating mask mandates and forcing vaccines on many Americans, their hypocrisy is on full display at the southern border where they are encouraging illegal migrants to enter our country unchecked for COVID,” said Senator Marshall. “Enough is enough. We must adopt commonsense measures for the health and safety of our nation and ensure those entering illegally are not further contributing to the spread of this virus.”
