Rep. Cammack Decries Border Agents Given Vaccine Mandate While Migrants Aren’t
Rep. Kat Cammack recently went on Newsmax where she spoke out against the breaking news that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents will now be required to get vaccinated by “November 2021 or face termination.”
The big problem for Cammack and many others, is that the Biden administration is not putting out a vaccine mandate for folks in the migrant caravan that is crossing the southern border, despite the fact that more than a million people have tried to come over into our country illegally.
Making an appearance on the Wednesday episode of “American Agenda,” Cammack, a Republican from Florida, responded to the notice demanding Border Patrol agents take the jab.
“Now we’re hearing that we have a mandatory vaccination requirement coming out of the White House,” Cammack went on to say. “This is insane! We already have 75% of our Border Patrol agents processing and babysitting all of these illegals that they are allowing to just walk across. If you do not have a secure border, you do not have a secure nation.”
According to a tweet on Wednesday from House Judiciary GOP, a “whistleblower alleges that Border Patrol agents have been given official notice that they must be fully vaccinated by November 2021 or face termination.”
“Let me remind Biden,” Cammack stated, adding, “that he (1) is refusing to call this a crisis, and (2) has zero requirements for the illegals coming across. So it’s rules for thee, but not for me.”
“The border agents that are putting their lives on the line … with their hands tied behind their backs, they are now being forced to meet another standard that no one else does. And if I am correct, and I think I am, the White House doesn’t even have a mandatory vaccination requirement. Why is that? Why is there such a hypocritical role that the White House is constantly pushing out?” She continued.
According to administration officials at the White House, “the President has signed an Executive Order to take those actions a step further and require all federal executive branch workers to be vaccinated.”
However, The New York Times says, “those who work for Congress or the federal court system” will not be forced to get the vaccine.
