Biden Imposes Vaccine Mandate on Mexican Truck Drivers, Not Illegal Aliens
It makes sense.
The illegal aliens are going to vote Democrats while the Mexican truckers might actually go back to their country and not be present for the 2022 and 2024 elections.
But if Biden's going to impose a vaccine mandate on Mexican truckers, but not illegal aliens, the truckers could just arrive, claim refugee status, get papers ordering them to show up one day to have their claim processed, drop off their cargo, and then go back home.
In the insanely surreal open border of the Biden era, that makes as much sense as anything else.
Biden will require all truck drivers who cross US land borders to be fully vaccinated by January 22, the administration planned to announce on Tuesday.
The mandate will apply to all essential, nonresident travelers crossing US land borders, including government and emergency response officials.
Is the mandate going to require foreign government officials, including UN personnel, to be vaccinated? That would be interesting.
The current focus though appears to be on truck drivers.
. The American Trucking Association warned earlier this month that vaccine mandates for truckers could worsen the supply-chain crisis.
"The US is already facing unprecedented supply chain disruptions and delays due to many factors, including significant labor shortages, production shutdowns, a shortage of raw materials, and pent-up consumer demand," the ATA said in a letter to the administration in October. "Our data shows that a vaccine mandate may very well further cripple the supply chain throughout the country by forcing up to 13% of drivers to leave the industry entirely," the group added.
So what? Buttigieg will adopt another baby and take another two-month leave. And call anyone who objects a homophobe. Biden will blame the supply chain crisis on capitalism.
That's the way the game is played.
