CNN Host Says Conservatives Are ‘Demonizing Immigrants As Diseased’ COVID Spreaders. Here Are Some Facts


CNN host Brianna Keilar on Monday blamed conservatives for “demonizing immigrants as diseased spreaders” of the coronavirus, saying that there are “no facts” to back up the claim that illegal immigrants at the southern border spread the pathogen. “There is a crisis on the border,” Keilar acknowledged Monday on CNN’s New Day. She noted that the last time this many migrants attempted to cross the border in one month was two decades ago. In July, according to unofficial counts, Customs and Border Protection faced more than 200,000 people at the southern border, and June was not much lower at 188,000 migrant encounters. “So yes, President Biden has a real problem on his hands here, and his critics are capitalizing on it,” Keilar said. She went on to accuse former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of “echoing the tone of far-right extremists when it comes to immigration reform.” Gingrich said on Fox Business that, “what’s hard for most of us to accept is that the anti-American left would love to drown traditional classic Americans with as many people as they can who know nothing of American history, nothing of American tradition, nothing of the rule of law.
