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.

OH Judge halts Air Force from punishing airmen who sought religious exemption from vax mandate

COVID Vaccine

A Judge of the Southern District of Ohio granted a preliminary injunction against the U.S. Air Force from punishing the servicemen and women who had filed for a religious exemption to the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate on Wednesday.

Judge Matthew W. McFarland, just two weeks before, ordered a restraining order against the Air Force from pursuing punitive measures against the airmen.

The case, Doster v. Kendall, McFarland wrote that the Air Force failed to raise any “persuasive arguments” for why the Court should not extend an existing Preliminary Injunction prohibiting the Air Force from punishing a group of plaintiffs to all airmen seeking religious exemption. He added:

[T]he Court reminds Defendants that ‘[i]t is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is. Thus, due to the systematic nature of what the Court views as violations of Airmen’s constitutional rights to practice their religion as they please, the Court is well within its bounds to extend the existing preliminary injunction to all Class Members.

All active-duty, active reserve, reserve, national guard, inductees, and appointees of the United States Air Force and Space Force, including but not limited to Air Force Academy Cadets, Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) Cadets, Members of the Air Force Reserve Command, and any Airman who has sworn or affirmed the United States Uniformed Services Oath of Office or Enlistment and is currently under command and could be deployed, who: (i) submitted a religious accommodation request to the Air Force from the Air Force COVID-19 vaccination requirement, where the request was submitted or was pending, from September 1, 2021 to the present; (ii) were confirmed as having had a sincerely held religious belief substantially burdened by the Air Force’s COVID19 vaccination requirement by or through Air Force Chaplains; and (iii) either had their requested accommodation denied or have not had action on that request.

In addition, the order said the Air Force, which includes their officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys, and other people acting in concert or participation with them, who receive notice of this preliminary injunction, are PRELIMINARILY ENJOINED from:

(i) taking, furthering, or continuing any disciplinary or separation measures against the members of the Class for their refusal to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, while keeping in place the current temporary exemption; such disciplinary or separation measures include, but are not limited to, ‘adverse administrative actions, non-judicial punishment, administrative demotions, administrative discharges, and courts-martial’ for the benefit of Defendants, this includes continuing any administrative separation or punitive processes or initiating the same.
