Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement for 100 million Americans won’t affect illegal immigrants

Published

on

President Biden announced on Thursday a broad COVID-19 vaccination requirement for around one hundred million Americans, but did not implement required vaccinations for illegal immigrants.

“We’ve been patient. But our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden announced , putting the blame on the eighty million Americans who have not had the vaccine.

“Nearly three-quarters of the eligible have gotten at least one shot, but one quarter has not gotten any,” Biden continued to scold those who are not fully vaccinated. “That’s nearly 80 million Americans not vaccinated. And in a country as large as ours, that’s 25% minority. That 25% can cause a lot of damage — and they are.”

Biden again slammed unvaccinated Americans, “The unvaccinated overcrowd our hospitals, are overrunning the emergency rooms and intensive care units, leaving no room for someone with a heart attack, or pancreatitis, or cancer.”

Biden attacked unvaccinated Americans, who are “supported by a distinct minority of elected officials,” and claims they are”keeping us from turning the corner.”

Biden’s six-point “Path Out of the Pandemic” plan will force United States employers with more than a hundred workers to require their employees to get the COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing. Companies that do now follow with Biden’s order can face fines of up to $14,000 issued by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

All federal workers and millions of contractors who do business with the federal government will be forced to be fully vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccinations are mandatory for the over seventeen million health care workers at hospitals and health care settings that participate in Medicare and Medicaid.

Biden also requested big venues to require proof of the vaccine or a negative COVID-19 test for people to have entry.

The president also wants to force states to have vaccine requirements for all school employees.

Biden doubled the fines on Americans who decline to wear masks in airports, airplanes, trains, maritime vessels, and intercity buses.

During Biden’s announcement of new measures to try to slow the spread of COVID-19, noticeably lacking from his plan was mandating illegal immigrants to get the vaccine.

HHS and the CDC mandate immigrants to get certain vaccines before they are allowed into the United States:

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regulations demand that all immigrant applicants be given a medical exam. During the exam, applicants are required to show proof that they have been given certain vaccines. If an applicant does not have proof of having been given the required vaccines, the law states that the vaccines must be given at the medical exam.

The list of required vaccines which does not include COVID-19 vaccinations:

-Mumps
-Measles
-Rubella
-Polio
-Tetanus and diphtheria
-Pertussis
-Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib)
-Hepatitis A
-Hepatitis B
-Rotavirus
-Meningococcal disease
-Varicella
-Pneumococcal disease
-Seasonal influenza

An Axios report from July stated that 30% of illegal immigrants in custody by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement have declined to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continues its vaccination efforts to include voluntary vaccinations for individuals in the care and custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),” an ICE spokesperson told Axios in July.

ICE reported over 27,000 COVID-19 cases among illegal immigrants in its custody since coronavirus testing began in February 2020. As of Wednesday, there are 851 confirmed COVID-19 cases among those in custody who are currently under isolation or monitoring.

The city of McAllen, Texas, said in August there have been more than 7,000 confirmed COVID-19-positive migrants let go into the city since February.

Based on a Kaiser Family Foundation survey from May, only 31% of “potentially undocumented” immigrants in the United States got the COVID-19 vaccine. Nearly 54% of Americans are fully vaccinated.

United States Customs and Border Protection apprehended about 210,000 migrants at the southern border in July, reaching an amount not seen in more than twenty years.

“We just talked about the fact he was happy that I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving Communion,” Biden said about the gathering.

He added that the topic of abortion didn’t come up in the gathering.

Gold Star father tears into Biden over supposed arrangement to give large installments to illegal migrant families

Published

Gold Star father David Horton slammed President Joe Biden in a meeting Sunday, scrutinizing the Biden organization’s accounted for plan to convey huge financial installments to some migrant families.

The Wall Street Journal announced last week about the arrangement to pay migrant families affected by previous President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance illegal immigration policies.

The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.

The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family, though the final numbers could shift, the people familiar with the matter said. Most of the families that crossed the border illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. included one parent and one child, the people said. Many families would likely get smaller payouts, depending on their circumstances, the people said.

Among the issues pundits have raised with the arrangement, the greatest is that non-citizens remain to get additional cash from the U.S. government than gold star families if the arrangement becomes reality.

As of now, the U.S. government pays the group of fallen assistance individuals $100,000 in “death gratuity”; the installments are tax excluded. The families of service members additionally have the choice to gather a limit of $400,000 in extra security, however administration individuals need to pay into the protection intend to accept its advantages.

Speaking on “Fox and Friends,” Horton — whose son, Army Spc. Christopher Horton, was killed in Afghanistan in 2011 — proclaimed the Biden administration’s arrangement “an insult” and clarified it disrespects military families.

“I think it’s another — yet another insult … against our military families and Gold Star families and veterans’ families,” Horton said. “It’s just another another slap in the face. It’s completely disrespectful.”

“To compare an illegal person who has broken our country’s border laws … they’ve broken the law coming in on our borders and to compare that with someone, a patriot like my son, who gave his all on the battlefield of Afghanistan, and to just say, ‘Oh well, the value is more for someone who has broken our laws’ … and now to say, ‘Oh, we owe you money — and it’s more money than we would pay a patriot — I am outraged,” Horton said.

“You just wonder, where is the outcry against some of these policies that are just there? Unbelievable to me,” Horton added.
