FALSE Claim via Social Media: The Biden administration is deporting Cubans “because Cubans by and large are conservatives.”

Politifact rating: False (Cuba’s foreign minister recently said the country would resume accepting Cuban nationals deported by the United States. Cuba stopped doing so during the COVID-19 pandemic. Multiple U.S. presidential administrations have deported Cubans, including former President Donald Trump’s administration. No evidence the U.S. is deporting Cubans because they tend to vote Republican. Immigrants from all countries are deported if they are illegally in the United States.)

No evidence that U.S. is deporting Cubans based on political affiliation

Claim by Christina Parks (America’s Frontline Doctors): Face masks cause hypercapnia and blood acidity, which might increase cancer risk

Health Feedback rating: Incorrect (Face masks can’t block gas exchange because gas molecules are much smaller than the face mask pores. Therefore, face masks are extremely unlikely to cause a significant increase in the levels of carbon dioxide in the blood.)

Face masks don’t cause hypercapnia or blood acidity; no evidence indicates that these conditions increase cancer risk
