Breitbart reports that President Joe Biden is planning on vaccinating illegal aliens against the coronavirus.
This information was first reported by the Washington Post.
According to the outlet, anonymous administration officials said that they plan on offering the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine to illegal immigrants currently in U.S. custody.
“Until now, only a limited number of migrants have received the vaccine while held in longer-term U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facilities,” the outlet reports. “Under the broad outlines of the new plan, DHS will vaccinate them soon after they cross into the United States and await processing by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”
Those who will be offered the vaccine will be immigrants either who are facing deportation or who will be released into the U.S. pending a court hearing.
Those who are immediately sent back, however, will not be offered the vaccine.
This comes after several reports that indicated that the Biden administration has been releasing, into American communities, coronavirus-positive illegal aliens.
At first, these reports were generalized. But, more recently we were given concrete examples from Texas communities.
The Biden administration has been facing a lot of blowback for this considering how strict it has been with legal Americans during the coronavirus pandemic. So, it appears that this is one way that the Biden administration will now meet this criticism, that is, by offering coronavirus vaccines to illegal immigrants.
What about legal travelers?
Currently, the United States is denying entry to people who in the past two weeks have traveled to the United Kingdom, the 26 Schengen nations in Europe, Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran, or Brazil. But, this could soon change, and the Biden administration is working on a policy for when it does.
According to Reuters, the Biden administration plans on requiring foreigners to prove that they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus before they will be allowed to enter America. There will be limited exceptions, but it is unclear what those exceptions will be.
This all comes as it appears more and more likely that proof of vaccination against the coronavirus will be required in order to participate in life.
