National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins appeared on Fox News Sunday to talk about how children can avoid contracting the delta variant of COVID-19. Since children under 12 cannot receive the vaccine yet, Collins suggests that they mask up instead.
“This is really a different virus than last year, and everything we learned about COVID a year ago,” Collins said. “You got to sort of hit the reset button on now how we need to react to it.”
As a result, the NIH director suggested children under 12 wear masks at school. “If delta is as contagious as we now know it is, and we want to try to put an end to a very significant uptick right now, wearing masks if you’re under 12 and can’t be vaccinated when you’re in school is a really smart thing to do,” Collins said.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, out of 503,544 deaths just 296 were kids below the age of 12. That’s less than .06%.
However Collins admitted that this strategy is mostly to protect children’s teachers and family members. He called it back “a sacrifice worth making.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
