Rep. Mark Meadows, the ex-White House chief of staff, continued his fierce criticism of Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday, wondering aloud why the nation’s top disease expert has been so quiet on the COVID-19 dangers unraveling at the southern border.
“There was no policy, medical or otherwise, that Dr. Fauci wouldn’t weigh in on when President Trump was in the White House,” the North Carolina Republican tweeted. “Curious we haven’t heard from the same Dr. Fauci on Joe Biden releasing thousands of COVID untested migrants into the U. S.”
Meadows was referring to reports of migrants overwhelming U. S. Border Patrol agents along the southern border. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D‑Texas, said at least 2,000 migrants have been released without full information on any upcoming court proceedings, according to WREG.com. He said agents are overwhelmed. The New York Post also reported that 2,000 were released without evidence of submitting to a COVID-19 test.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) — A top U.S. border official said on Tuesday he expects more than a million migrants will arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border this year, a sign of a growing humanitarian challenge for President Joe Biden on the southwest border.
If the figures reach 1 million, it could mirror a similar increase in border crossings in 2019 during Donald Trump’s presidency, when nearly 978,000 migrants were taken into custody.
