White House Asked Why Vax Mandate Doesn’t Include Migrants At Border, Answer Is Scary

In an unprecedented move, Joe Biden announced his intention to force private employees to receive the coronavirus vaccine via a shot in the arm.

The “new federal vaccine requirement” impacts as many as 100 million Americans. It impacts private-sector employees, health care workers, and federal contractors.

However, the Biden White House Press admits the vaccine mandate does not include migrants at the U.S. southern border.

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked, “Why is it that you’re trying to require anybody with a job or anybody who goes to school to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but you’re not requiring that of migrants that continue walking across the southern border into the country?”

Psaki responded, “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. That’s exactly what we did. But certainly we want everybody to get vaccinated.”

Psaki continued, “And more people who are vaccinated, whether they are migrants or whether they are workers, protects more people in the United States.”

Doocy asked again, “But it’s a requirement for people at a business with more than 100 people, but it’s not a requirement for migrants at the southern border, Why?”

“That’s correct,” Psaki answered before quickly calling on another reporter.

More Americans disapprove of Biden (49 percent) than at any other point in his presidency, according to a YouGov survey. The survey was conducted between Sept. 4th through the 7th.

There has been widespread speculation about whether this action is legal. There will undoubtedly be many legal challenges in court against the Biden administration, critics say.

In issuing this order, Biden stated, “We’ve been patient. But our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us.”

After months of availability and incentives to receive the vaccine, Biden is furious with Americans who opt not to receive the vaccine.

It appears that tens of millions of Americans still prefer to consult their physician and make their own personal choices regarding what to do with their bodies.

“This is not about freedom or personal choice,” Biden said. “It’s about protecting yourself and those around you, the people you work with, the people you care about, the people you love. My job as president is to protect all Americans.

Here’s a transcript of the exchange with Psaki:

REPORTER: Thank you, Jen. To follow up on the call with President Xi last night, exactly two weeks ago, when the intel community came up empty trying to figure out the origins of COVID, the President said “critical information” about the origins of this pandemic exists in the People’s Republic of China. When he talked to the President of China last night, did he press him like he said he was going to?

PSAKI: Well, I’m not going to go into a list — (alarm sounds) — of every topic discussed. That was a very dramatic entry to that answer, but I’ll start again. I’m not going to go into every list of every topic discussed. They did discuss a range of transnational issues, including COVID-19. And understanding its origins is, of course, a primary concern for this administration. We continue to support phase two of the WHO’s investigation in China, and call on China to allow further studies of COVID-19 origins in China.

I will also note that, you know, one of the topics the presidents also discussed is the importance of being able to have private discussions between the two leaders. This is in contrast to some of the other interactions we’ve had at lower levels with the PRC. And so, yes, it was a topic raised, but I’m not going to go into further detail.

REPORTER: So we should understand that to mean that the President did ask him to let international investigators in to get this information that he says China has?

PSAKI: We’ve conveyed that many times publicly. I think they know that that’s our position and view.

REPORTER: But not publicly. On this 90-minute phone call, did they talk about —

PSAKI: Again, Peter, this is a topic that we have said — conveyed many times, at many levels. I’m just not going to have more in the call to read out for you.

REPORTER: Okay. And then why is it that you’re trying to require anybody with a job or anybody who goes to school to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but you’re not requiring that of migrants that continue walking across the southern border into the country?

PSAKI: 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. That’s exactly what we did. But certainly we want everybody to get vaccinated. And more people who are vaccinated, whether they are migrants or whether they are workers, protects more people in the United States.

REPORTER: But it’s a requirement for people at a business with more than 100 people, but it’s not a requirement for migrants at the southern border. Why?

MS. PSAKI: That’s correct.
