House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., argues on ‘Fox and Friends’ that President Biden’s policies have encouraged migrants to illegally cross the border.
FIRST ON FOX: House Republican Whip Steve Scalise on Tuesday wrote to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, accusing the Biden administration of exempting illegal immigrants from COVID-19 restrictions – while citing testimony from Dr. Anthony Fauci to make his case.
"As a nation we are placing burdensome public health restrictions on American citizens while those who enter our country illegally are permitted to flow into American towns and cities without any such restrictions," Scalise wrote to Mayorkas. "This is jeopardizing the health of Americans and threatens to prolong the COVID-19 pandemic. It appears that the Biden administration is exempting illegal immigrants from the very rules that American citizens are forced to follow."
In the letter, Scalise notes that current CDC guidance is that everyone wears masks in public and keep a social distance, but points to overcrowded migrant facilities in places like Donna, Texas, where images emerged of migrants packed together in overcrowded facilities.
