Dr. Anthony Fauci, in a Politico Dispatch podcast interview published Monday, said that the federal government will not require the use of vaccine passports for travel or business.

“I doubt that the federal government will be the main mover of a vaccine passport concept,” Fauci, the nation’s foremost infectious disease expert,

“They may be involved in making sure things are done fairly and equitably, but I doubt if the federal government is going to be the leading element of that.”

This echoes what the White House said last week that vaccine passports will be driven by the private sector.

Fauci’s comments also come as many Republicans express outrage at the concept. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Friday went as far as to ban them from being mandated via executive order.

During the interview, Fauci also said he believes “individual entities,” including theaters and colleges, will be the ones to decide on passports.

“I’m not saying that they should or that they would, but I’m saying you could foresee how an independent entity might say, ‘Well, we can’t be dealing with you unless we know you’re vaccinated,’ but it’s not going to be mandated from the federal government,” he said.

Just The News put together a terrifying report on the announcement by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. Data released Monday unearthed that the agency arrested more than 130 sex offenders illegally present in the United States in a nationwide campaign.

From Oct. 22 through Nov. 4, law enforcement arrested 138 noncitizens, “including some with an executable final order of removal,” ICE wrote in a statement about the operation.

“Many of those arrested were described as citizens of Mexico who were convicted of child sex crimes. Offenders’ published ages ranged from 24 to 65″ adds Just The News.

“These sex offenders will be removed from the U.S., ending and impeding their ability to further victimize residents,” said Salt Lake City ICE official Michael Bernacke.

Five noncitizen sex offenders were apprehended in the Salt Lake City area, 21 were arrested in the Los Angeles area, five in the Seattle area and 15 in the San Francisco area.

ICE’s removal office conducted 3,415 arrests of noncitizens for sexual assaults last fiscal year, authorities said.
