ANALYSIS – The mushrooming border and humanitarian crisis created by President Biden’s radical immigration policies is adding a major new COVID threat to America – thousands of untested illegal migrants packed into detention facilities at 100% capacity and then released, untested, into the United States. Even as Biden claims his overriding policy focus is fighting COVID, he is throwing the door wide open to COVID at the border.
This, while Mexico has the highest per capita COVID fatality rate in all of Latin America.
Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, despite opining about every minuscule activity which could possibly spread COVID, has not said a word about the COVID threat from the border.
As noted by The Blaze:
He [Fauci] has warned against going to holiday gatherings, attending sporting events, living life without face masks even if vaccinated, allowing maskless kids to play together, and anything else that tickles his fancy.
But he has been strangely silent about the current border crisis, where our Border Patrol is being overrun by thousands of illegal aliens surging into the U.S.
Even local Democrat politicians along the border are complaining loudly. Del Rio’s Mayor Bruno Lozano, a Democrat colorfully told the New York Post:
You have this whole administration whose major line item on their platform is a hard stance on COVID-19 and you have this humongous gap in that policy, humongous on ginormous proportion.
Making the case of Fauci’s deafening silence, Mark Meadows, chief of staff to former President Donald Trump, Tweeted Wednesday:
There was no policy, medical or otherwise, that Dr. Fauci wouldn’t weigh in on when President Trump was in the White House. Curious we haven’t heard from the same Dr. Fauci on Joe Biden releasing thousands of COVID untested migrants into the U.S.

Ten Republic lawmakers took their concerns further and have made the case directly to Dr. Fauci. In a letter fired off to Fauci on March 12, Republican Rep. Mo Brooks, and nine other GOP lawmakers, asked Fauci to use his national pulpit to stop “a dangerous new foreign pipeline for COVID-19” along the U.S.-Mexico border.
In the Tweet he said:
I joined 9 of my colleagues in sending a letter to Dr. Fauci & Dr. Collins @NIH, explaining that the Biden border crisis will only get worse if we continue to catch & release illegal aliens that are carrying COVID-19 across our porous southern border.

The letter stated that Biden’s “dangerous” policy of “catch-and-release” border has caused a surge in illegal crossings, exposing “the lack of any uniform testing requirements or quarantine protocols — despite the fact that Mexico now has the highest per capita COVID fatality rate in Latin America.”
The letter continued: “Even more troubling are recent reports indicating that the surge in illegal migration is worsening by the day, creating a dangerous new foreign pipeline for COVID-19 infections in border communities, and the nation at large.”
When will Fauci speak up about this major new COVID threat? America needs to know.
