WASHINGTON, DC – The White House today confirmed what has long been speculated by Americans. Illegal immigrants crossing the U.S. border from Mexico are not required to get vaccinated upon their arrival or before their release. In fact, at no point are illegal immigrants living in America required to get a COVID-19 vaccine at all, but White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said she hopes they would do so on their own once inside America.
Today, Fox News reporter Peter Doocey confronted Psaki on the Biden administration on its inconsistent vaccine mandate announced by the President on Thursday.
“You’re trying to require anybody with a job or anybody who goes to school to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but you are not requiring that of migrants that continue walking across the southern border into the country,” Doocey asked Psaki.
Last night the President mandated that any American with a job in a company with more than 100 employees will have to be vaccinated or risk being fired. That mandate excluded the U.S. Postal Service whose job is to go door to door each day delivering mail across the country.
“Well look, 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, ignoring Doocey’s question. “That’s exactly what we did but certainly, we want everybody to get vaccinated, and more people are vaccinated, whether they are migrants or whether they are workers, protects more people in the United States.”
“It’s a requirement for people at a business with more than 100 people, but it’s not a requirement for migrants of the southern border, why?”
“That’s correct,” Psaki said as she requested questions from other reporters.
This is what Psaki said back in May.
