How come Iowa can’t have a governor like Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey – one who says it like it is: “Folks are supposed to have common sense. It’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks”?
Instead, Reynolds is scapegoating the asylum-seekers crossing the Mexican-American border as the spreaders of the variant delta variant of the coronavirus. In comparison to the tens of millions of unvaccinated American citizens who are the real culprits in the rapid spread of the latest viral variant, the number of border crossers is minuscule, far too tiny to have a significantly measurable effect on advancing the current wave of infections, illnesses and deaths.
Gov. Ivey has it right. Reynolds is shamefully wrong and frankly racist in her lie about the refugees who are entering the U.S. She should be doubly shamed for relegating daily updates by the Department of Public Health on the spread of the delta variant in Iowa to only weekly summaries. This is a deliberate and calculated maneuver on her part that begs the question: What is she trying to hide and why?
