Immigration, fear of vaccination leading to arrest, a blind spot of potential exposure, detention, travel restrictions, the burdens and health risks imposed by detention or travel restrictions including legal visas expiring while in lockdown, and the repercussions of sending potentially infectious individuals into other countries are all quite relevant to the issue even without having to play catch up on a recent history of denying the right to apply for asylum and still holding a number of children captive after all this time whose parents were given the boot and can't be found or even verified as still alive complicating the mess.
And that's just the direct problems. The pervasive culture of fear, hostility, distrust, and an existentially terrifying rejection of or indifference to verifiable facts Trump left behind will work against all efforts. The rampant lawlessness of those in positions of authority which now includes enough of the police force in America as to consider the entire profession unreliable in their duties as a result of those policies if not complicit in outright criminal acts against the public they are no longer accountable will also drastically impact public cooperation. Putting forward anything that rebuilds public trust is essential.
So if you're just lying as usual and there isn't anything like that on the table but you just want to play to that aforementioned culture of fear and disinformation that will make putting out this fire exponentially more difficult costing lives and the money you care more about than lives by the minute on a goddamned logarithmic scale that's something that very well should be under consideration.
The many bills anti-abortion legislation is crowbarred into can make no such claims and have often been used by everyone's favourite wereturtle Mitch McConnell to hold crisis response hostage or simply to hold up Senate business and even cursory discussion of issues not on the Republican agenda out of spite. So you know, glass houses.
