The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 9/05/2021

Each day Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers that are either a signatory of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) or have been verified as credible by MBFC. Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. (D. Van Zandt)

Claim Codes: Red = Fact Check on a Right Claim, Blue = Fact Check on a Left Claim, Black = Not Political/Conspiracy/Pseudoscience/Other

Claim by Ted Cruz (R): “In the last several months, the Biden administration has released over 7,000 illegal aliens who were COVID positive just in one Texas city.” Biden’s border policies are “endangering not just the people of Texas, but people all across the country.”

MBFC rating: Mostly False (The 7000 number is accurate; however, migrants have a lower positivity rate than Texas as a whole, indicating other factors are causing the increase in Covid-19 cases such as lack of mask wearing and the unvaccinated.)
