👎🏻 HR-3525 the U.S. Border Patrol Medical Screening Standards Act 👎🏻
This bill to me, appears to be just another Democratic attempt in the prolonging migrants retention, in the USA 🇺🇸.
I stand opposed to House Bill HR-3525 AKA the U.S. Border Patrol Medical Screening Standards Act which would require standardized processes and training to ensure consistent medical screenings for individuals apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border within 12 hours of their initial stop. These medical screenings would cover medical history, current medical complaints, current medications, and more. This bill would also provide law enforcement and the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) staff with requested training to improve the quality of care given to migrants and equip officers with additional resources to address medical situations.
DHS & CBP has already requested additional funding to expand medical screening for migrants in its care and Congress has already appropriated additional money for this purpose in an emergency funding package from June 30, 2019.
