White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tries to explain why travelers need proof of vaccine but illegal immigrants don’t. It doesn’t go well.
She starts with trying to suggest there is some kind of order when an immigrant crosses the border illegally. They are checked for symptoms and then quarantined if there is a concern. It may not be true, but that’s what Circle Back Jen insists is Biden’s policy.
But what about travelers? They are exposed to many other people just like migrants, so why do they have to be vaccinated but migrants don’t. Say what? Didn’t 15,000 Haitian migrants just camp out on the Texas side of the border for a week before 12,000 of them were spread out across the US by the Biden administration.
How many of them were tested for COVID-19? How many are vaccinated? There is unlikely even a count, but if there was, it would be near zero.
What about the 200,000-plus illegal immigrants entering the nation each month? Anyone in charge of testing all of them? Of course not. There’s not enough manpower to even catch or process that many immigrants, much less test for symptoms of COVID.
Rather than admit the truth though, the Biden administration tried to get around the truth. Watch Psaki’s pathetic attempt to circumvent the truth with her answer. Here’s a hint to how it goes: She was as successful as Biden has been in securing the border.
