(RepublicanWire.org)-Dr. Mehmet Oz criticized President Joe Biden’s “disastrous” immigration policies on Hannity and said that every state is truly a border state because of these policies. 

In the interview Oz said, “Folks here are concerned already about the immigration issues because I know they use social services, and it also speaks to the broken covenant between Americans and the government. We obey the law, we pay our taxes. The government secures our border. Where [there is] porous border, not only do we get illegal immigrants, we support cartels that are human trafficking and they’re bringing opiates across the border as we’ve heard from two prior guests this evening. So every state is truly a border state, as I tweeted out, and I think these middle-of-the-night flights Wilkes-Barre Scranton airport are really a problem. It’s not whether ICE or Health and Human Services is responsible for the flights. It’s the reality that these people become the responsibility of every local community, every local government — and Pennsylvanians deserve answers.”

He went on to say, “The first thing, when you walk into an operating room as a surgeon, that’s what I do … you shine a light on the wound. You want to be able to see everything. The Biden administration is doing the opposite. Obfuscating, clouding the view, darkening the room, and they’re hiding dangerous ramifications of this failed border policy. If we had an 18 percent incidence of COVID last summer among illegal immigrants, imagine what it is today. And think about the crime and drug stats that are skyrocketing in places like Philadelphia with higher homicide rates than ever before seen — period … Even more than the crack wars of the 1990s. A lot of this is related to overall frustration because you don’t know who’s who.” 

Mehmet Oz, a medical entrepreneur and television host who is now running for US Senate in Pennsylvania, said he would like to see Anthony Fauci removed as director of the National Institute Of Allergy And Infectious Diseases. Fauci has held this post since 1984.

While being interviewed Oz said, “Dr. Anthony Fauci has lost the faith and confidence of the American people. It’s time for a new face talking to the American people, one that is more trusted.”

As the head of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Fauci faced immense scrutiny from Americans when he contradicted or shifted positions on a number of guidelines including wearing or not wearing protective masks.

He went on to say,“I believe Anthony Fauci should be held accountable for misleading, whether willfully or unintentionally, the American public and the United States Congress,”  on matters relating to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Some Republicans, like House GOP conference chair Rep. Elise Stefanik has called for Fauci to be prosecuted on charges of lying about his knowledge of the  virus  when he testified before Congress last year.

Fauci is still in good standing with President Biden as his chief medical advisor, even after making false statements about vaccines during an October hearing.
