White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was visibly irritated with Fox News’s Peter Doocy as the reporter continually pressed her for solid answers. Doocy wanted to know what the White House was doing to ensure the hoard of illegals hitting the southern border are vaccinated. What he uncovered was more Biden hypocrisy.
With the government forcing mandated vaccines Doocy asked, “what’s going on at the border is somebody asking the foreign nationals who are walking in and Del Rio, Texas and setting up camps on this side of the border for proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test?”
Psaki has to catch herself, “Well, first of all I can I can re-address for you, or re-talk you through what steps we take–”
Doocy interrupted Psaki to make sure she actually answered him this time.
“That’s the policy for people who fly into the country. So if somebody walks into the country, right across the river, does somebody asked them to see their vaccination card?” Doocy asked.
A visibly irritated Psaki responded, “Well, let me explain to you again, Peter, how our process works,” She snarked. “As individuals, as individuals come across the border, and they are both assessed for whether they have any symptoms if they have symptoms they are, the intention is for them to be quarantined, that is our process. They’re not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time.”
“I don’t think it’s the same thing,” she continued, now stumbling over her words. “It’s not the same thing. These are individuals, as we’ve noted, and as we’ve been discussed, we’re expelling individuals based on Title 42, specifically because of COVID, because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering, posing a threat to the community and also to the migrants themselves. So, those are the policies that we put in place, in large part because, again, the CDC continues to recommend Title 42 to be in place given we’re facing a global pandemic.”

In short, the Biden administration finds it more important to enforce vaccine mandates on American citizens than on illegal immigrants because ‘they aren’t staying’. I hope they remembered to tell Covid that…
