Democrat Lawmaker Claims Its Impossible for Illegal Aliens To Spread Coronavirus

Fact checked
Democrat Rep claims illegal aliens are not spreading coronavirus

Democratic Rep. Cindy Axne claims that illegals crossing the border are somehow unable to spread coronavirus in America.

During the Let’s Talk Guthrie County podcast, the host asked Axne about possible coronavirus cases coming in via illegals crossing the southern border:

“Customers and Border Protection have apprehended more than 176,000 migrants from July 1st to July 28th of this year,  more than [sic] 2000 coming from the CBP. I’d just like to get your thoughts on the border situation and ensure that these migrants aren’t coming over with [the Chinese coronavirus] and infecting U.S. citizens.”

The congresswoman responded by saying it’s “not even a reality” that “people 1,300 miles away are infecting [Americans].” She added, “We all know [the Chinese coronavirus] can’t travel” 1,300 miles and mentioned that it’s because “folks are literally being detained at the border.” reports: Axne even blamed Americans who are not wearing masks and not getting the coronavirus vaccine for causing the virus to spread. The Iowan said it is “disingenuous” for anyone “to say that people are coming into the country and spreading” the Chinese coronavirus:

“If people 1,300 miles away are infecting us with [Chinese coronavirus] we got a bigger problem then I thought. That’s not even a reality. We all know [the Chinese coronavirus] can’t travel like that and we all know as you mentioned, folks are literally being detained at the border. So to say that people are coming into the country and spreading this, is quite honest, it’s so disingenuous. What we need are people in our own communities who won’t get the vaccination, to get the vaccination, because they are the ones who are spreading it. Unfortunately, we see too many young poeple, young children, who can’t get vaccinated. Thier parents are very scared to send them back to school and I can’t blame them, it’s very scary to know your child is being exposed to a dangerous pandemic because unfortunately, others won’t wear a mask or get vaccinated. So, I’d have to look into their own communitiy becuase it’s certainly not coming in from 1,300 miles away.”

Despite what Axne said on the podcast, documents from a leaked presidential briefing recently said that 20 percent of the illegal migrant children who were unaccompanied crossing the border tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus. The report showed the children tested positive after Border Patrol had released them into communities.

NBC News also reported that “Migrants are not tested for Covid in Border Patrol custody unless they show symptoms, but all are tested when they leave Border Patrol custody, according to DHS officials.”

Breitbart News exclusively reported that Axne favors federally mandating masks for children in schools. When asked at a town hall, she said that she would “check and see” what she can do “at a federal level” to mandate that children wear masks in schools.


  1. Apparently, according to ill-informed emotional handicaps and self-aggrandizing politicians such as this woman only potentially unvaccinated Conservative or Republican American Citizens can transmit this disease or whatever it is.

  2. The BRACKETS are what creep me out in this story. [the Chinese coronavirus], over and over again. Even [Americans]. What the heck is THAT about?

    • It’s propaganda, and lately the editors on this website are getting worse and worse with it, to the point of being a hair’s breadth away from making up stuff to publish. And I find this habit of activist news reporting, doesn’t matter which side it’s on, repugnant and off-putting.

  3. Well, then according to democrats I should be able to self identify as anything I want. Therefore, self identifying as an illegal alien I will not need any vaxs or masks. Just give me the goodies and I will be on my way.

  4. Corona Virus Deaths have increased in Louisiana, Arkansas, Nevada, Mississippi, Missouri, and Florida. There are Early indications that some states with larger populations are beginning to see an increase in the Corona Virus Deaths as well. Of the 620,000 people in the US who have died of this virus so far, only about 10,000 were from people below the age of 50. That’s about 1.6% of the total Covid deaths.

    Its clear that the Democrats are intentionally seeding the US with the virus in order to cull out the more conservative older population. I strongly suggest that people over the age of 50 seriously consider getting vaccinated if they have not already done so.

  5. Unbelievable we have so many brain dead people who are supposed to guide our country to peace and prosperity

  6. Remember Rep. Hank Johnson? Don’t put too many US troops on Guam because the island might tip over? Remember Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee praising Neil Armstrong’s walk on Mars? Well, add this quip for the ages.
