Skip to comments.CDC's Rochelle Walensky Shrugs Off Idea That Illegals Are Spreading COVID At The Border, Promises "Guidelines" Someday

The more CDC director Rochelle Walensky talks, the worse she sounds.
Along with her well noted controversial statements about returning to mask-wearing and a nationally mandated COVID vaccine, the latter of which she walked back to some extent, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director threw out other nutty statements that are worth noting — if for nothing else, then the fact that Joe Biden says he defers to her and her continuously mistaken bureaucrats at CDC.
Breitbart News reported that a question about illegal border-crossers spreading COVID, from Fox News's Bret Baier, triggered this exchange:
Baier said, "But do you know the surge, how the surge of illegal immigrants with COVID is affecting the overall rate, you know, it sounds like the percentages down there on the border are astronomical?"
Walensky said, "Yeah, you know, I would say that the percentages in the southern part of this country are really quite high. I don't necessarily think we can attribute all of that to what's going on at the southern border. I think what we really need to do is spend our time getting our communities vaccinated to getting our individuals vaccinated to prevent disease from transmitting in our communities."
Basically, she was attempting to brush off the obvious problem of unvetted illegal aliens coming into the U.S. and spreading COVID throughout the country. With the U.S. paying for their tickets, either by airplane or bus, to their choice of destinations, it's pretty obvious that a disease vector, courtesy of the Biden administration, is in place. During the Trump administration, that avenue of spread was shut down firmly through Title 42, throwing illegal migrants back on COVID concerns, based on protecting the country.

These days, there’s nonsense like this going on:
Baier said, “One woman wrote in, My in-laws live in Austria, they cannot come here to see their six-month-old baby because of the EU travel band even as migrants come across the southern border from other countries with more COVID and worse vaccine performance and they are allowed in. Is that a problem, Dr. Walensky?
Walensky said, “We’re working, um, at the CDC to provide technical assistance for all areas of travel as well as to provide technical assistance at the southern border. So as people come in, we are keeping migrants, as well as those communities, as safe as possible with the technical assistance and infection prevention guidelines from the CDC.”
She’s an Evil, Science denier.
Just more proof of how political the Covid thing has become.
None of this is about any sort of virus. They don’t care about the virus. They care about the jab.
Many ilictos are headed towards Miami, Chicago and Las Vegas.
They have no stinking time to spread Covid in border areas.
"High viral loads suggest an increased risk of transmission and raised concern that, unlike with other variants, vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus,"
Walensky made BOTH statements on Friday, July 30, 2021.
If the illegals wear BLM shirts they will have double immunity.
Title 42, Rochelle. You enforce it on the cruise industry. Why not at the border? Eh???
they want illegals to spread it
its cover for the draconian lockdowns and losses of freedom and deflecting hatred towards those deciding they don’t want this “vaccine”
If anyone of these jackballs were serious, they would close the border down for pandemic reasons.
Sounds to me like she’s saying that it’s necessary for American citizens to all get vaccinated to protect themselves from the covid the illegals are bringing in.
This Biden regime is corrupt from top to bottom and needs to be dumped in the garbage can of history. Let’s not mince words here, they stole the election and are imposing a dangerous situation upon the American people, only a third of whom actually deserve it.
Shame on them and shame on the majority of the Republican Party who have gone along with it so far.
She really means to say that it’s necessary for American citizens to all get vaccinated to protect the illegals from getting the covid the illegals are bringing in. Sound loony? It is.
Yeah, and not ALL of those 3,000 deaths on 9-11 can be attributed to the terrorists flying airplanes into buildings.
Is the the one that likes to cry?
