On March 18, 2020, then-candidate Joe Biden said that halting travel from China because of the coronavirus was “xenophobic fear-mongering.”


“Stop the xenophobic fear-mongering. Be Honest. Take Responsibility. Do your job.” – Joe Biden’s tweet, 3/18/20

Today, the Biden Administration is reimposing a multi-country entry ban because of the coronavirus:

  • “Biden on Monday is also reimposing an entry ban on nearly all non-U.S. travelers who have been in Brazil, the United Kingdom, Ireland and 26 countries in Europe that allow travel across open borders.” – “Exclusive: Biden to impose South Africa travel ban to combat new COVID-19 variant – CDC,” Reuters, 1/24/21)


Has President Biden changed his mind on the efficacy of coronavirus entry bans?

Or are entry bans still “xenophobic fear-mongering” ?

Which is it?

The American people deserve to know.
