(Republican Insider) – Dr. Anthony Fauci, Joe Biden’s top adviser for the coronavirus pandemic, apparently doesn’t think that unscreened illegal aliens play a huge part in spreading COVID-19 all across the United States, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary and just plain old common sense.
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise because Fauci is a “yes man,” which means he’ll do whatever his progressive overlords in the Biden administration will tell him to say. He wants to do his part to help spread their message and narrative. Not to mention he’s receiving a lot of money for his work, and lots of attention from the media fawning over him. Those are things he doesn’t want to let go of.
According to WND, CNN host Dana Bash cited the findings from a Kaiser Family Foundation poll of Americans that asked what they thought might be the top reasons for the continued spread of the coronavirus. The number one reason stated by Republicans, she said, was immigrants and tourists bringing the illness into the country.
“Are immigrants a major reason why COVID-19 is spreading in the U.S.?” she went on to ask during the “State of the Union” program.
“No, absolutely not, Dana,” Fauci responded. “If you just look at the data and look at the people who’ve gotten infected, look at the people in the hospital, look at the people who’ve died, this is not driven by immigrants.”
“This is a problem within our country, the same way it’s a problem with other countries throughout the world,” the doctor added.
The director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases then said, “certainly immigrants can get infected, but they’re not the driving force.”
“Bash noted Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky announced Friday that the agency is reevaluating Title 42, the emergency order under the Trump administration allowing immigration officials to expel migrants more easily because of the pandemic,” the report said.
Bash then asked Dr. Fauci if there was a medical reason to continue imposing the rule.
“I’m sorry, Dana, but I’m not as familiar with the intricacies of that to make any comment about that rule,” Fauci responded.
“My feeling has always been that focusing on immigrants, expelling them or what have you, is not the solution to an outbreak,” he continued.
Back in April, Rep. Steve Scalise, a Republican from Louisiana, went on to confront Fauci and Walensky during a hearing in the House, asking them why illegal aliens can violate COVID rules all day long while crossing the border illegally, while actual American citizens just trying to live their lives cannot.

“Meanwhile, a senior State Department official announced he is leaving the Biden administration because of the president’s use of Title 42 to expel migrants from the southern border,” the report noted.
“In an Oct. 2 legal memo, Politico reported, Harold Koh, the sole political appointee on the State Department’s legal team, called the use of Title 42 ‘illegal,’ ‘inhumane’ and ‘not worthy of this Administration that I so strongly support,'” the report continued.
“The White House and State Department argue they can’t do anything about Title 42 because it is tied to public health determinations made by the CDC,” WND’s report said.
“Title 42 is a public health authority, not an immigration one, and that authority rests with the [Center for Disease Control and Prevention],” a White House official, Politico reported. “The CDC has determined that the continued expulsion of certain individuals under Title 42 is necessary due to the risks of transmission and spread of COVID-19 in congregate settings, such as U.S. Customs and Border Patrol stations, as well as the threat from emerging variants,” it said.
You know what else Fauci said lately that’s utterly ridiculous?
He stated during an interview last Sunday on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” that it was “too soon to tell” whether it’ll be safe for the American public to spend Christmas with their families. He then backtracked the statement on Monday, telling CNN that what he said was being “misinterpreted” and that it’s “absolutely not the case” that Americans can’t be with their families for the holidays.
“I will be spending Christmas with my family,” Fauci stated. “I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family.”

Good thing we don’t need Fauci’s permission to spend the holidays with our families, right?
