Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday border crossers were “a different issue” after confirming he advised President Joe Biden to implement testing requirements for individuals traveling to the United States.
Dr. Fauci was asked by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy during the White House daily press briefing if he believed that everyone should be tested when coming into the United States.
“The answer is yes,” Fauci replied. “Because you know that the new regulation, if you want to call it that, is that anybody and everybody that is coming into the country needs to get a test within 24 hours of getting on the plane to come here.”
When Doocy asked if migrants and border crossers should be held to the same standard, Fauci tried to clarify.
