On Thursday, things got heated as Overlord Fauci & CDC Director Walensky testified in front of Congress.
One of the glaring moments was the questioning by Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA).
Scalise provided pictures of migrants at the southern border and showed how it violates the CDC guidelines on masks and social distancing.
He also grilled Fauci & Walensky on migrants entering the United States without receiving a negative COVID-19 test.
Before showing the clip, I’d like to state from personal experience that it’s a tedious process for Americans re-entering their own country.
If you attempt to board a flight without proof of your negative COVID-19 test, then forget it.
You will NOT be allowed on that flight.
Legal American citizens face more red tape returning home than illegal immigrants crossing the border.
And many places inside the United States still treat their own citizens like prisoners.
Masks. Lockdowns. Vaccine passports.
It’s a disgrace that illegal immigrants are given a completely different set of rules.
Here’s Rep. Scalise exposing these hypocrites:
These people are such liars and frauds.
They’re holding the American people hostage with these nonsense guidelines.
And those guidelines don’t apply to illegal immigrants.
But that’s what happens when you have a politically biased CDC.

~A little late to the game Fauci (as usual) after over 100,000 illegal aliens are already in our country~

Just the News reported:
White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci on Thursday conceded in a tense exchange with Louisiana Republican Rep. Steve Scalise that the Biden administration is violating major Centers for Disease Control and Prevention coronavirus guidelines by packing countless illegal immigrants into relatively small facilities without enforcing social distancing or masking measures.
The CDC has aggressively pushed those guidelines over the past year, directing that Americans should work to remain six feet apart from each other in public spaces and wear face coverings when away from the home.
Images from U.S. border facilities over the past several weeks, however, have shown little enforcement of those guidelines among illegal immigrants detained amid the current surge of unlawful migration at the southern border.
At a House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis hearing on Thursday, Scalise —the House minority whip and the ranking member of the subcommittee — grilled both Fauci and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky on the Biden administration’s COVID enforcement among illegal immigrants.
Holding up pictures of densely packed immigration facilities, Scalise asked Fauci: “Dr. Fauci, does this look like social distancing to you that you require when you talk about six feet?”
“No,” Fauci replied.
Holding up more photos of packed facilities, Scalise asked further: “You can see all of these young children who are next to each other six inches apart, many without masks — by the way, does that follow your guidance that you’ve issued?”
“No,” Fauci replied again.
“Do you think that sends the right message to America — [where] people are trying to recover and get back to their way of life — that if you’re a citizen, you follow this set of rules, but if you come here illegally, you don’t have to follow any of your rules?” Scalise asked further.
“No doubt it’s a very difficult situation at the border, Congressman Scalise,” Fauci fudged, arguing later that “everyone would like to see the situation get fixed.”
Fauci did not respond to a request for comment on the Biden administration’s lack of guidelines enforcement in immigration facilities, including whether or nor he has advised President Joe Biden on the issue and/or whether or not he believes those facilities are helping spread COVID-19 in the U.S. to any appreciable extent.
The Biden administration in March directed child migrant facilities to expand to their pre-pandemic capacity levels, claiming the “extraordinary circumstances” of the recent surge necessitated such a decision.
