Biden border order ‘total joke,’ Fauci belongs ‘behind bars,’ Missouri Senator Josh Hawley argues

Biden’s executive order on the border is “a total joke,” and Dr. Anthony Fauci “ought to be in jail,” Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley says in an exclusive interview with The Heartlander.

The president Tuesday “unveiled a halt to asylum processing at the U.S. border with Mexico when illegal entries reach a threshold that he deems excessive,” as the Associated Press puts it.

“The measure takes effect immediately because the new policy is triggered when arrests for illegal entry reach 2,500. About 4,000 people already are entering the U.S. each day.”

The executive order “was met Tuesday with condemnation in Texas from elected officials of both parties,” reports the Texas Tribune.”

Leading the chorus of condemnation was Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who wrote in a statement:

“Since his first day in office, President Biden dismantled all of his predecessor’s successful border policies, encouraging millions of illegal immigrants — including dangerous criminals and terrorists — into our country. For three years, the President has lied about the existence of the border crisis, deflected blame to Congress, and now contradicts himself by issuing a feckless executive order​ months before Election Day.”

Hawley was much more blunt.

“Well, first of all, the action he’s proposing to take is a total joke,” Hawley told The Heartlander. “This is a guy who has let 9 million illegal migrants into this country in the last three years – 9 million. And every day brings some new report about crimes committed: murders, carjacking, stabbings. It’s happened in the state of Missouri multiple times.

“And now he says, ‘Maybe if we have multiple thousands of illegals come across in a day, maybe I’ll temporarily close the border in the future.’ Are you kidding me? Close the border. Now. He should never have opened it. He’s the one who opened it three and a half years ago.

“He should close it completely. But he won’t, because the truth is he wants the border open.”

On the other big news of the week, Hawley said what he thinks of Fauci, after the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases testified before a House panel.

Fauci has admitted, as early as January, that the six-foot social distancing rule that Americans took as gospel was not based on clinical evidence. “You know, I don’t recall. It sort of just appeared,” he told Congress back then. “I don’t recall, like, a discussion of whether it should be 5 or 6 or whatever.”

“Oh, he ought to be in jail,” Hawley says plainly.

“This is a guy who has gotten so rich he is the richest public servant, so-called, in America. He’s spent his entire career on the federal payroll, and yet he is a multimillionaire. 

“And yet, he lied to us over and over and over. Our kids had to wear masks because Fauci lied to us. We had to shut down the whole economy because we needed to have six feet of distance; he made that up. He lied to us. Because of him, there was so much damage done. He lied to us about the vaccines. He lied to us about the tests. He lied to us about the origins of COVID. He said it couldn’t have come from a lab, it couldn’t have come from a Chinese leak, when in fact he knew it did. He knew what the intelligence was. 

“This guy is an unbelievable example of what happens when you allow bureaucrats to run things and have no accountability. And the truth is, he should be off the payroll, off of his pension and behind bars.”

USA TODAY opinion columnist Nicole Russell penned her own outrage with Fauci.

“Statewide lockdowns, shuttered businesses, school closings: All were based initially on the social distancing rule of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” Russell writes.

“These disclosures are damning and maddening for all of us who had structured our lives around these rules for years. As a result, millions of people suffered needlessly. …

“These revelations are infuriating. Fauci repeated CDC-based COVID-19 protocols as the mouthpiece of President Trump’s administration. Desperate for guidance, states, local governments, businesses, churches and schools instituted them.”
