Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on March 9 that everyone arriving in Israel must undergo a 14 day self-quarantine.

“All those coming to Israel from abroad will be placed in isolation,” he said in a video address.

Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri said the measure would be immediately going into effect for all Israelis returning to the country.

In other words, foreign arrivals will have to demonstrate that they have adequate arrangements to be quarantined throughout their stay in country.

“After a day of complex discussions, we made a decision: everyone who comes to Israel from abroad will enter the 14-day isolation,” Netanyahu declared in a statement.

“This is a tough decision, but it is essential to maintain public health – and public health precedes everything.”

According Israeli media reports, this means that approximately 268,000 Israelis who are currently traveling abroad would need to self-quarantine upon return.

So far, Israel has recorded 42 cases of Covid-19, but no deaths.

The country has already imposed restrictions on travelers coming from several countries including Italy, one of the other countries most impacted by the coronavirus outside of China.

Unlike most countries, Israel functions like a proper nation-state.

Conservative commentator Paul Joseph Watson noted this on Twitter.

He posted “Israel announces anyone arriving from overseas has to go into quarantine for 14 days. Meanwhile in the EU, it’s open borders as usual.”

Europe’s open borders obsession could lead to its eventual undoing.

The coronavirus is just one of many ways that open borders can be exposed, and as a result, the citizenry of open border jurisdictions will be susceptible to illnesses and other socially disruptive events.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
