#2 Seems this might not be constitutional. The problem in NY seems to be more intenal than external, and this seems like deflection.

And how do truckers, bus drivers and couriers fit into this? Essential workers?

#4 So NJ, CT, PA, et al can set up checkpoints to make sure travelers from NY are similarly treated? If we are talking about 'hot spots', it's a rational act.

#7 Spent a lot of time in NYC. If you have business there, legitimate or otherwise, perhaps you need to go there. If it's about your skinny jeans and hipster beard, not so much.

#8 Definitely sounds unconstitutional as all hell.

The interstate commerce law has been used to control all sorts of things it shouldn't.

This is what it was meant for.

#11 Surprised DeBlasio is not collecting taxes (some may call them 'fees') from out-of-towners at these checkpoints yet.

#15 So, if I wanted to spend a week visiting NYC, I would actually have to spend three weeks there?

#16 @ #14 - Code name is "Arschloch", if I am not mistaken.
