The Hypocritical Irony of Biden's Latest Move Against the Border Patrol

The Border Patrol has been stretched thin with the incredibly bad policies of the Biden administration resulting in record numbers of illegal aliens flooding the border.

We’ve seen them doing their job valiantly — as in Del Rio, Texas — only to be blamed for doing so by Joe Biden, and smeared with a lie about whipping Haitian illegal aliens.

But as we’ve seen, the vaccine hammer is dropping on a lot of people now, with moves to terminate the unvaccinated. We reported on the autocratic governor of New York who announced that she would have thousands of healthcare workers fired and replaced by National Guard members, retired people, and foreign workers who may not even have current licenses.

Now, that hammer is coming for the Border Patrol, too, according the the House GOP. A whistleblower revealed to the GOP that the Border Patrol has been told they face termination, if they are not vaccinated by November 2021.

The House GOP sent a letter written by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas objecting to this action.

This move would devastate an already overburdened force, if this were put into effect. And it will likely fall on those more likely to be questioning of this Administration. Jim Jordan told Fox’s Laura Ingraham his conclusion, given everything that Biden has done with the border, is that Biden doesn’t want border defense – that “it’s deliberate.”

Jordan also pointed out the hypocritical irony in all this, as well: that while the Biden Administration wants to force the Border Patrol to be vaccinated, they don’t seem to give a darn about the vaccination status of the illegal aliens pouring into the country.

From Townhall:

“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,” Jordan said. “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.”

Earlier in the day, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was asked by lawmakers what their approach to vaccinating illegal immigrants is, and he told them the illegal immigrants are asked if they want it—that taking the Covid vaccine is their choice.

“This is ridiculous and the American people know it’s ridiculous,” Jordan said, pointing out that Border Patrol is already suffering.

So, while Americans are being forced into getting the vaccine or losing their job, illegal aliens under the Biden Administration are given a choice. No requirements for testing either, for that matter, and then they are just being released all over the country. The double standards are wild here.

If they really cared about the virus, why don’t they seem to care about illegal aliens coming in with the virus? The fact that they don’t tells you it’s not about the virus, it’s about the control.

Mayorkas has admitted that about twenty percent of illegal aliens they encounter have the virus.

“We are confronted with a population of people that, as a general matter, that have a rate of illness of approximately 20%,” said Mayorkas, who has been in his position since January. “When one is speaking of 7,000 or 7,500 people encountered at the border every day, if one takes a look at that the system, it is not built for that in a COVID environment where isolation is required.”

More than 200,000 were encountered entering last month. Many of those being released around the country. How many exactly, the Biden Administration wouldn’t say.
