Attilio Fontana, the Governor of Lombardy said he was accused of racism in February when he recommended that travelers hailing from China be tested for the Wuhan Virus.
Fontana is a member of populist leader Matteo’ Salivni’s Lega party.
A report from La Repubblica revealed the response to his admonition during a debate in the Regional Council on April 2, 2020. He said that when he put forward the idea of testing people arriving from China for the virus on February 3, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte assured him that the country was not in danger of a mass outbreak because the medical system was ready for the outbreak.
Fontana noted that some of his colleagues called him a racist for floating the idea of testing and claimed that he had been “mocked with insolent words” and he took offense to his colleagues’ remarks. He also revealed that he was told that mandating testing would sully Italy’s image on the world stage.
Lombardy is the region of Italy most impacted by the Wuhan Virus outbreak.
Of all European countries, Italy has had the most confirmed cases of the virus.
The first cases in Italy surfaced at the end of January, when two Chinese tourists were confirmed to have the virus. The first significant outbreak was uncovered in February 21 in Lombardy, when 16 cases were confirmed.
Fontana had choice words for Italy’s National Institute of Health (ISS), which forced a Lombardian company able of producing 900,000 protective masks daily to wait for certification before it could start working. “The ISS has yet to realize that we are in a state of emergency,” Fontana stated. “Since no one is giving us masks, at least give us permission to produce them.”
Political correctness can be deadly.
In this era of globalist induced crisis, nations will need to discard PC tropes and start upholding their national interests such as maintaining strong borders and limiting immigration.
WTF: Border Wall Construction Crew is Busted for Smuggling from Mexico in Texas
According to a report form Breitbart News, Border Patrol agents tasked with patrolling the Rio Grande City Station spotted a pickup truck close to Rio Grande in Fronton on July 20, 2020.
The agents witnessed the vehicle parking close to a new wall construction site. A number of individuals were spotted putting items onto the back of the truck and then driving off toward Highway 83.
Then, the vehicle turned east and started heading toward Roma, Texas. The agents eventually carried out a traffic stop on a yellow and black Ford F-250.
The suspect did not comply with the stop and started fleeing on foot south on Lincoln Avenue and headed towards the border. Jaeson Jones of Breitbart noted that this “common tactic is known as a ‘bailout.’”
Agents saw the driver dive right into the Rio Grande and swim his way back into Mexico. Focusing their attention back at the F-250, agents arrested five people who were seen loading the truck. Law enforcement sources reported that these individuals were in the U.S. illegally.
The vehicle was allegedly registered to CMF Leasing in Fort Worth, Texas. There were decals on the truck that promoted Southwest Valley Constructors (SWVC), a firm that is currently contracted to build a border wall system.
On top of that, the investigation revealed that the driver was identified as a resident of Roma who was by employed SWVC, according to Border Patrol agents account of the incident.
Law enforcement sources informed Breitbart Texas that the driver has a prior history of smuggling activity.
On May 28, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to award a contract to construct about three miles of new bollard wall system on federally lands situated within the Rio Grande Valley Sector.
Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. received a contract for $42,860,000. In addition, Kiewit has an office located at the same address in Fort Worth where the F-250 is registered at.
The road to securing America’s border will not be easy.
America is dealing with a failed state in Mexico, so there will be plenty of bad actors looking to exploit America’s flawed border policies and undermine its sovereignty.
Thankfully, the U.S. has a presidential administration that is quickly working to tackle border security.
