40,000 Landed in U.S. From China After Trump’s Travel Ban

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New data reveals that nearly 40,000 people have landed in the United States from China after President Trump imposed the coronavirus travel ban.

“The travel data finds that since Trump’s travel ban, close to 40,000 people landed in the U.S. from China,” reports Breitbart. “Since New Year’s Eve, about 430,000 people landed in the U.S. on direct flights from China — thousands of which traveled directly from Wuhan, China, while mostly arriving in California, New York, Illinois, Washington, Michigan, and New Jersey.”

These states have since all become epicenters of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States.

Travelers were allowed to enter the country despite the ban due to ‘chain migration’ laws which allow relatives of American citizens to enter with minimal or non-existent health screenings.

The data also reveals that in the first half of January alone, some 4,000 people entered the United States from Wuhan, with 19 of those flights landing in California and New York.

As we highlighted last week, in the three months before Trump imposed the travel ban and when coronavirus was raging, 759,493 people entered the U.S. from China.

This number included 228,000 Americans who were returning home, meaning that roughly half a million were Chinese citizens or people living in China who were visiting the U.S. for tourism, business or to see family.

While all this was happening, the World Health Organization was demanding countries not engage in “stigmatization” by enforcing any kind of border controls.

That worked out great, didn’t it?

Summit news. Nice!

If you have a quarrel with this data source then it's incumbent on you to provide evidence that it is wrong. Since you made the claim without evidence then you stand alone as the wrong party.

I don’t think it would be at all shocking if China intentionally seeded the US with infections

A New York Times report details flight records collected from China-based VariFlight and U.S.-based MyRadar and FlightAware that show a continued flow of arrivals from China — where the coronavirus originated — even after Trump’s travel ban.

The travel data finds that since Trump’s travel ban, close to 40,000 people landed in the U.S. from China. Since New Year’s Eve, about 430,000 people landed in the U.S. on direct flights from China — thousands of which traveled directly from Wuhan, China, while mostly arriving in California, New York, Illinois, Washington, Michigan, and New Jersey.

All of these states have now become highly affected coronavirus outbreak zones, along with New Orleans, Louisiana. Of those 430,000 people who landed in the U.S. from China since New Year’s Eve, more than 380,000 came in January on more than 1,300 direct flights.....

Like YOUR New York Times, the one linked in this article? No, I don't have a subscription to the Times, and I don't want one.

why are you blaming Congress for the failings of the Executive branch? I'm thinking the responsibility for enforcement of the travel ban lies with the FAA, Homeland Security and CDC.

Oh????? Does an executive order supersede a congressional law?

Obama thought so, but it's false.

your article references Breitbart. it does not reference NYT

you'd have to click through and read the Breitbart article to find the original citation
which is never going to happen; no one puts that much time in to reading your posts
because:

1. you post 20 stupid threads a day
2. you cite obscure and plainly disreputable web sites
3. you lie a lot

that's the sort of response bohter gives on the flat earth thread. Have you read the thing? Here's an interesting part:

Sec. 3. Implementation and Enforcement. (a) The Secretary of State shall implement this proclamation as it applies to visas pursuant to such procedures as the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, may establish. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall implement this proclamation as it applies to the entry of aliens pursuant to such procedures as the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State, may establish.

here's the link to the full thing: https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/proclamation-suspension-entry-immigrants-nonimmigrants-persons-pose-risk-transmitting-2019-novel-coronavirus/

Maybe I'm missing something, but at first glance it looks like the executive branch + State + Homeland Security are the ones botching here, no?

From your research accepting foreign travelers who arrive under OTHER premises falls under the executive branch's discretion. But the information you cite says nothing about arrivals seeking residency under the chain migration law. And that makes sense because the chain migration law is an attempt at interpreting the 14th Amendment. I think it's a wrong interpretation, but that's how it stands.

Again, this is an executive branch fail. Read Sections 1&2. The President (not Congress) left open so many loopholes it is nuts. If this is so bad that we have to essentially shut the country down, then he shouldn't be allowing so many people in on flights from China without legit quarantines, regardless of their immigration status or citizenship.
