OPEN BORDERS AND YOU: HOW TO GET USED TO DISAPPOINTMENT

The City of McAllen, Texas, announced today that 7,000 Covid-19 positive illegal immigrants have been released into their city by the federal government since February, with 1,500 in just the past week. In response, the city has declared a state of disaster. In normal times with a normal president, McAllen’s declaration would be seen as evidence of catastrophic failure by the federal government to maintain control of the border. But we are not in normal times and without a normal president, so the crisis has been relegated to the back pages in favor of lurid Cuomo reporting. Still, the media’s cover-up does not absolve policymakers of their responsibility.


HEY! TEACHER, LEAVE US KIDS ALONE!

If international travel is anything to go by, we will be stuck with silly public health restrictions for a long time. At Dulles International Airport, CDC notices remind you to “keep calm and wash your hands,” a message that is repeated ad nauseam over the intercom. Similar directives are everywhere at the Budapest and Frankfurt airports. We’ve known that the risk of Covid-19 surface transmission is negligible for well over a year, but hand sanitizing stations dot concourses and airplane stewards still hand out complimentary wipes when you board your flight. Along with free pretzels and middling coffee, the smell of stale disinfectant has become a feature of flying.

THANK YOU SIR, MAY I PLEASE HAVE ANOTHER?

Covid-19 vaccination rates are rising across Europe, restaurants and bars are reopening, people are traveling for work and leisure, and life is returning to something resembling normal. But the virus hasn't gone away, and the recent increase in daily cases, along with the delta mutation, is keeping health officials and governments on edge, pushing many of them to take extreme steps in the fight against the pandemic.
