Rhode Island National Guard Searches House-to-House for New Yorkers Fleeing the Wuhan Virus, Can Hunting Them for Sport Be Far Behind?
[Red State] - A little earlier this year, there was a huge kerfuffle over a Hollywood picture called "The Hunt" in which rich, effete liberals tried to acquire a patina of heroic virtue by hunting down human quarry who were thinly disguised Trump supporters. Now this scenario is beginning to play out for real.
This is from Bloomberg, so it may or may not be true, but because it is coverage of a Democrat politician in a Democrat stronghold, I’m assuming the story on-the -ground is worse than this:
Rhode Island police began stopping cars with New York plates Friday. On Saturday, the National Guard will help them conduct house-to-house searches to find people who traveled from New York and demand 14 days of self-quarantine.
Many New Yorkers have summer houses in Rhode Island, especially in tony Newport, and the governor said the authorities would be checking there.
"Yesterday I announced and today I reiterated: Anyone coming to Rhode Island in any way from New York must be quarantined," the governor said. "By order. Will be enforced. Enforceable by law."
