Fauci Discusses New Testing Rules For Entering US, Says Illegal Immigrants Are ‘Different Issue’

During a press briefing on Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, said that he is working with President Biden on new COVID-19 testing requirements for people entering the United States – but that the COVID-19 threat posed from illegal immigrants flooding across the southern border was “a different issue.”

“Dr. Fauci, as you advise the president about the possibility of new testing requirements for people coming into this country, does that include everybody?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked.

“The answer is yes,” Fauci responded. “Because you know that the new, the new regulation if you want to call it that, is that anybody and everybody who’s coming into the country needs to get a test within 24 hours of getting on the plane to come here.”

“But what about people who don’t take a plane and just these border crossers coming in huge numbers?” Doocy asked.

“That’s a different issue,” Fauci said. “For example, when you talk, we still have Title 42 with regard to protection at the border. So there are protections at the border that you don’t have the capability as you know, of somebody getting on a plane getting checked, looking at a passport, we don’t have that there, but we can get some degree of mitigation.”

Fauci’s comments come as illegal immigration in fiscal year 2021 hit its highest annual total ever recorded. According to data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, there have been over 30,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among illegal immigrants in custody this year.

    Fauci is TOTALLY out of line.

    In fact, existing federal law requires ALL returning American citizens, and ALL foreigners entering the nation to BE VACCINATED with 14 specific vaccines.

    There’s a time limit on getting vaccinated

    For a few million dollars we can force ALL the people crossing the Southern Border to accept vaccinations ON THE SPOT.

    A few buses, nice heating, chairs to rest in after vaccination, all the good stuff. Staffed with nurses, and they line up, walk through, get their vaccinations and a shot card!

    What could be better in the long run for all of us.

    Oh, and if they get caught again, they get the shots again IF THEY DON’T HAVE THAT SHOT CARD.

      People somehow forgot that our migrating ancestors had to go through quarantine before being allowed into country. And if they had any sickness, could be turned away.

Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House

Vaccine

Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.

Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.

National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.

In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.

Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
