A new poll showed the majority of voters had concerns about migrants bringing COVID-19 into the United States. On Tuesday, a poll by Rasmussen found that 73 percent of participants were worried about a large number of migrants possibly super-spreading the virus to Americans.

Meanwhile, over 100,000 illegal immigrants have crossed the U.S. border under the Biden administration’s new policy.

“President Biden’s border crisis has got to get reversed,” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) stated. “If you look at where we are right now, you have thousands of people crossing illegally into the United States every single day. Those border states are getting overrun [and] it’s a drain on their resources. There are super spreader caravans coming across.”
