For all the talk of wearing masks, getting vaccinated, and social distancing, Dr. Anthony Fauci has not said anything about the tens of thousands of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Fauci also hasn’t said anything about the hundreds of migrants being jammed and stuffed into tiny pods and facilities because the Biden administration is allowing an unprecedented amount of illegals immigrants into the country.
And South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham wants to know why Fauci is so quiet all of a sudden.
“Thousands of migrants from Central America are coming into the country with a 10% COVID-positive rate. They have 900 people staying in a room built for 80 – overcrowded by more than 1,000% percent,” Graham said on Fox News.
“Migrants in these facilities are intermingled and on top of each other. After being around COVID-positives, they are dumped off in Texas and taken to other parts of the country furthering the spread. Dr. Fauci, does COVID-science justify President Biden’s handling of migrants from Central America?” Graham rhetorically asked.
“If you are worried about the spread of COVID, you should be gravely concerned about what is happening at our southern border. There is no end in sight on this super-spreader event until these policies are changed,” the senator said.
The Daily Mail reported:
Fauci has not spoken out about the crisis at the border, despite strongly critiquing Republican governors who have lifted restrictions in Texas and Mississippi.
Graham is just one among a number of politicians – both Republican and Democrat – who have expressed concerns that overcrowded migrant detention facilities could be fueling the spread of the coronavirus,
More than 170,000 migrants were apprehended at the southern border in March – the highest number in 15 years.
That is also significantly up from the 100,000 taken into custody in February.
During the administration of Donald Trump, Fauci also didn’t say anything about Black Lives Matter protests being super spreader events.
He was too busy condemning small gatherings of families and friends to be concerned with tens of thousands of people gathering and marching together at BLM and left-wing rallies.
The border crisis created by the Biden administration is about to get a lot worse in the coming months.
According to documents that were leaked to Axios, the Biden administration is projectinging that the number of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border could spiral from more than 16,000 this month to as many as 26,000 in September.
So, the administration thinks the border crisis will continue to get worse month over month until at least September.
To give a sense of how out of hand the crossings are getting, the administration projected just a month ago the figure for May would be 13,000. The new estimate is 22,000 to 25,000.
The Customs and Border Protection range for September is 22,000 to 26,000. Under any scenario, projections include a peak month that would double the record that stood until this month.
Spokespersons for the White House and the Department of Homeland Security did not respond to requests for comment. A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services referred Axios to DHS.
Here’s the cherry on top: Axios reports that: “Even the low-end estimate is double the total number of kids who tried to cross during the crisis year of 2019. In 2014, the Obama administration struggled to care for just 69,000 kids who crossed illegally.”
Almost 110 border-crossers that Biden’s DHS released ended up testing positive for the coronavirus between January 25 and March 1.
