Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds blames unvaccinated migrants for Covid’s recent increase

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds blames unvaccinated migrants for Covid's recent increase

Reynolds’ comments came as the the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday issued new masking guidelines in the wake of a surge in Covid-19 cases. “For her to say that, we consider that hate mongering,” Reynolds told NBC News on Wednesday. “She needs to be doing her job here in Iowa. We’re still having a problem here in Iowa with people being vaccinated.” The CDC said all students in kindergarten through 12th grade — and teachers and staff — should wear masks when they return to classrooms this fall, even those who have been vaccinated.

Joe Henry, state political director for the League of United Latin American Citizens of Iowa, called Reynolds’ statement “hate mongering” and said she should concentrate on boosting Iowa vaccinations. A spokesman for Reynolds said Wednesday she’s made similar statements in the past, and mirrors views from other lawmakers in Texas.

Less than half of Iowa residents are fully vaccinated, according to the latest state data. “Part of the problem is the southern border is open and we’ve got 88 countries that are coming across the border and they don’t have vaccines,” Reynolds told reporters Tuesday.

David K. Li is a breaking news reporter for NBC News. The Biden administration Tuesday also confirmed earlier reports that it’s now recommending indoor mask use for anyone in areas of high transmission.
