CDC director overrules panel on Pfizer boosters for frontline workers

Hmmm. Nothing about the general idea of stopping suspected vehicles w migrants, like, what made them suspicious? Racial profiling? How that can impact ppl legally where they are? Make it punishable by death to either hire or give government assistance to illegal aliens. Border problem solved. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard of close the border stop letting illegals into our country that are infected with Covid and shipping them all over the country on taxpayer dollars to spread the virus and kill Americans

No. The article says 'the state was usurping and even interfering with the federal government’s responsibility to enforce immigration laws.' please amend the headline. Or the article. Just have the vehicles escorted by Federal law enforcement who can then arrest Texas law enforcement for obstructing Federal Officers in the line of duty.

Finish the wall and make the migrants use a legal entry point. OMG you can't have it both ways. You can't shut down our country and bring infected illegals in at the same time. DON'T YOU SEE THAT? CDC study shows 74% of people infected in Massachusetts Covid outbreak were fully vaccinated. Did I accidentally double my dose of crazy pills?

Too bad. Good!
