The White House announced that they are not planning to vaccinate the 200,000 migrants arriving at the border each month, despite President Joe Biden recently imposing mandates on federal workers and private businesses nationwide. Even White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that employees would have to get the jab but the people in federal custody could walk free. The Biden Administration has made it clear that they prioritize illegal immigrants over the personal health decisions of American citizens.
“Our objective is to get as many people vaccinated across the country as humanly possible, and so the president’s announcement yesterday was an effort to empower businesses to give businesses the tools to protect their workforces,” Psaki said.
Psaki went on to say that she wants everybody to get vaccinated whether they are migrants or workers in order to “protect more people” in the United States. Fox News reporter Peter Doocy then pointed out how the Biden Administration is implementing the vaccine mandate for businesses with more than 100 people, but not for migrants at the southern border. “Why?” He asked. Instead of elaborating and answering, Psaki simply said “That’s correct” before moving on to a different reporter.
While there have been talks about offering COVID-19 vaccines at the border, the agency does not have plans to vaccine them when they are in their custody. One Customs and Border Patrol spokesperson declined to comment on the record about it and another simply said that they have not administered any vaccines.
CBP agents have apprehended more than 1 million people attempting to cross the border since Joe Biden took office in January. The apprehension rates hit 21-year-highs on record while the agency experienced drastic understaffing issues. Agents explain how morale has “never been lower” within the departments and that the Biden Administration has abandoned all federal responsibilities on securing the border.
The Biden Administration has not only abandoned all responsibilities to protect the country, they are also punishing the border town communities for having to handle it. COVID-19 cases are reportedly surging in some of the immigrant detention centers, with government officials admitting that the illegal immigration rush has overwhelmed their facilities.
Public health officials have even noted that some of the detainees being transported to the facilities are likely to expose others during the trip. Yet Biden is demanding Americans to either submit to vaccination or face losing their jobs. The mainstream media has continued to applaud these efforts and criticize anyone who disagrees with getting the jab. It doesn’t even seem like exemptions or natural immunity is a thing anymore. It’s the jab or nothing.
The Biden team campaigned on transparency and have been anything but. Instead of elaborating or expanding on their double standards, they’ve refused to give any answers. Even Doocy has pressed Psaki on why border-crossers don’t have to raise the sleeve and submit to Biden’s mandate. He later shared that the Biden Administration admits it has no idea how long it will take OSHA to write the rule.
There are currently 19 Republican governors standing up against Biden’s vaccine mandates that would only harm small businesses and the American economy. Not to mention, slapping on more employee restrictions when there’s a labor shortage. How does President Biden intend to enforce rules that don’t even follow the science?
