Liberals have enjoyed using the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse for every piece of legislation and action they have imposed on the American people for over a year. They can’t, however, use coronavirus as an excuse for their southern border and immigration policies because that, in and of itself, would force them to acknowledge what is actually happening at the border.

Doctor Anthony Fauci on Thursday discussed liberals’ worst fear: that the scenario at the southern border is indeed a “major concern” for spreading COVID-19. Teachers who refuse to go back to in-person learning have willingly volunteered to teach migrant children apprehended at the border, in-person.

Fauci was shown a photograph of migrant children “crowded in a border facility in Donna, Texas” in a Capitol Hill hearing, reports the New York Post. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) held up the image which had 4,000 children packed together.

“Comparing the situation to an overpacked restaurant, Scalise asked if Fauci would consider it a ‘major concern’ if a business was at 250 percent capacity with 4,000 people”, reports the Post, to which Fauci responded, “it would be a major concern, yes.”

Scalise added that the children were “in most cases 6 inches apart, many without masks.” Scalise then made a bold move and asked Dr. Fauci to bring the conditions to President Biden’s attention. “It’s happening right now. It needs to end. President Biden can end this today” said Scalise. “He needs to stop this national health crisis, and a super spreader COVID event that he’s created at our southern border.”
