GOP Demands Biden Stop THIS!

(5MinNewsBreak.com) – As concerns grow over a mysterious illness affecting Chinese children, five Republican senators are taking a bold stance, urging Joe Biden to implement a travel ban from China.

Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott of Florida, J.D. Vance of Ohio, Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, and Mike Braun of Indiana, in a joint letter sent on Friday called for swift action to prevent the potential spread of the pneumonia-related disease to the United States.

The senators highlighted the Chinese Communist Party’s historical lack of transparency and truthfulness during public health crises, pointing to the impact of their actions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The letter reads, “During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCP’s obfuscation of the truth, and lack of transparency, robbed the United States of vital knowledge about the disease and its origin.”

Drawing a parallel to former President Donald Trump’s decision to implement a China-U.S. travel ban in January 2020, the senators defended the move, stating, “Many officials and commentators — including you — criticized his decision as being influenced by ‘xenophobia.’ But history and common sense show his decision was the right one.”

Recent reports from Chinese health officials have raised alarms, indicating clusters of unexplained respiratory illnesses predominantly affecting children in northern China since mid-October. The World Health Organization has requested more information from the Chinese government, acknowledging uncertainty about whether the spike in cases is due to a general increase in respiratory infections or separate events.

Expressing a sense of urgency, the senators argue against waiting for international bodies to act and emphasize the need for immediate federal action to protect Americans and the U.S. economy. “That means we should immediately restrict travel between the United States and [China] until we know more about the dangers posed by this new illness. A ban on travel now could save our country from death, lockdowns, mandates, and further outbreaks later,” the letter concluded.
