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

Published

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.

TX Judge Blocks Biden’s Federal Employee COVID-19 Vax Mandate

COVID Vaccine

A ruling came down from a Texas federal judge Friday saying President Joe Biden cannot mandate federal employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. It also blocked the government from disciplining any employees for failing to comply.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown said the merit in question is whether Biden could “require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment. That, under the current state of law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, is a bridge too far” he ruled.

Biden had issued an executive order requiring roughly 3.5 million workers to get vaccinated by November 22nd, unless religious or medical exemption was granted or face disciplinary action. In many cases, the consequence was to get fired.

Judge Brown, based in Galveston, was appointed by former President Donald Trump. He suggested less invasive measures could be implemented to protect the public such as masking and social distancing.

The Supreme Court temporarily blocked President Biden’s mandated vaccine-or-test policy, which began a landslide of large businesses disregarding any vaccination requirements. Starbucks was among the largest, well-known employer to do so.

Brown is not the only case to be in-line with the Supreme Court’s decision. In December, a mandate for employees of federal contractors to be vaccinated was blocked by a federal judge.
