Behind Biden’s Border Patrol Vaccine Mandate

Already taxed border agents will now be forced to get the COVID vaccine or risk termination.

A whistleblower in the Department of Homeland Security has alleged that the Biden administration will soon require Customs and Border Protection officers to receive the COVID vaccine or face termination.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan (OH) responded to the allegations with some stern words for Team Biden: “The people who have been busting their tails, enforcing our law, doing their job on the border, they’re gonna get fired if they don’t take the vaccine. Meanwhile, for people who break the law and come in here, no big deal, your choice [to take the vaccine], it’s up to you. That is how ridiculous the Biden administration has become.”

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas recently confirmed that apprehended illegal aliens are given the choice as to whether they want the COVID vaccine or not.

In a letter sent to Mayorkas, Jordan noted: “For years and through multiple administrations, it has been difficult to recruit and retain men and women to service the U.S. Border Patrol. The locations of the job are typically remote and the job is often dangerous and hard.” That’s especially so when Joe Biden and company spread “false accusations of cruelty” against illegal immigrants at the hands of Border Patrol officers.

So, the Biden administration has created yet another factor contributing to an already elevated Border Patrol attrition rate. It’s almost as if Biden’s goal is to hamstring Border Patrol by reducing the number of agents, which would critically hamper the ability to police the border, depressing morale further among the remaining agents. It will also artificially reduce the number of illegal immigrants apprehended, while at the same time increasing the number of illegals who get in unnoticed. That’s a pretty dastardly way to ensure that Scranton Joe won’t face headlines about quite so many illegal border crossings.

“If that isn’t the goal of a borderless hemisphere, if that isn’t deliberate, I don’t know what is,” Jordan concluded. “So this is again what is so scary, what is so frightening about this administration — this is what they must want because there is no other conclusion a rational person can reach.” Indeed, Biden invited this chaos as part of a larger strategy. But we’re supposed to think he cares because he’s demanding Border Patrol agents get vaccinated?
