Senator Asks CDC for Science Behind COVID Immigration Decision

'I believe that I understand the Administration’s progressive politics driving the decision, but I do not believe that there is adequate science that would allow such a decision to be made... '

(John RansomHeadline USA) Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., asked the White House to present details by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the decision to suspend Title 42 preventing asylum requests because of COVID.

The White House had previously claimed that the decision to suspend Title 42, a Trump-era policy that prevented people from entering the United States for asylum because of COVID, was based on science rather than politics, said The Hill.

In a statement about the lifting of Title 42 by the Biden administration, Burr accused the administration of being a “contradictory mess.”

“On the one hand, the Administration is clamoring for additional emergency funding and costing taxpayers $5 billion per month by delaying student loan repayment, citing the continued threat of COVID-19,” said Burr.

“On the other hand, they’re rescinding safeguards in place to prevent new, potentially undetected variants from entering the country and encouraging Americans to return to normal life,” he added.

In his letter to CDC Director Rochelle Walensky requesting the information on the science behind lifting Title 42, Burr was much more direct.

“I believe that I understand the Administration’s progressive politics driving the decision, but I do not believe that there is adequate science that would allow such a decision to be made,” Burr wrote.

It’s not the first time that Burr has called out the CDC on confusing the American people about COVID policies.

“This Administration has time and again squandered its opportunities and made things worse in the decisions you’ve made on testing and treatments and most crucially in communicating with the American people,” said Burr in a statement to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions that met with Walensky to take testimony about COVID variants.

“The American people are right to be confused when it seems like you all don’t even talk amongst yourselves,” Burr concluded.
