Citing concerns over the Delta variant of the Wuhan coronavirus, federal officials announced Monday that there would be no changes to longstanding U.S. travel restrictions that have kept most international travelers from entering the United States.
“Given where we are today with the Delta variant, the United States will maintain existing travel restrictions at this point,” explained an official, according to an exclusive Reuters report. “Driven by the Delta variant, cases are rising here at home, particularly among those who are unvaccinated and appear likely [to] continue to increase in the weeks ahead.” . . .
NEW: The U.S. will not lift any existing travel restrictions for the U.K. and 26 Schengen European nations citing concerns over the COVID-19 Delta variant.

Yet illegal immigrants, whose previous whereabouts and COVID or vaccine status are unknown, are still streaming across the border at historic rates as the Biden administration fails to address the crisis their policies created.
Just last week, U.S. officials declared that America’s land borders with Canada and Mexico would remain closed, apparently only to legal border-crossers, as pictures and footage of illegal immigrants amassed along the U.S.-Mexico border showed American officials letting in untested migrants by the hundreds.
DHS is in constant contact with Canadian and Mexican counterparts to identify the conditions under which restrictions may be eased safely and sustainably.
