FARRELL: The Border Crisis/COVID Spike Connection
From Chris Farrell’s Op-Ed for The Daily Caller:
The COVID-19 crisis and the border crisis are now tightly connected, but don’t count on the Biden administration admitting there’s a problem.
Last week, President Joe Biden accused Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott of contributing to the renewed pandemic emergency by getting in the way of “people who are trying to do the right thing.”
DeSantis responded that he is only standing in the way of those trying to “deny kids a proper in-person education” and “restrict people and impose mandates and ruin their jobs and livelihood.” DeSantis added that Biden should do his job to secure the border, and “until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID from you.”
When told of the DeSantis riposte Biden shot back, “Governor who?” The comment was meant to be snarky, but with our fuzzy-headed chief executive you have to wonder if maybe he really didn’t know.
Biden claimed that Florida and Texas account for “one-third of all new COVID-19 cases in the entire country.” But he failed to make the obvious linkage between the rise in disease rates and the dramatic influx of infected illegal immigrants in these two states.
