Biden mandates that truck drivers, other essential ‘travelers’ must get vaccinated before entering US

Darth Biden has now expanded his vaccine mandate to nonresident essential travelers who cross America’s borders every day, saying they have to get vaccinated or they won’t be allowed in the country:

AP – President Joe Biden will require essential, nonresident travelers crossing U.S. land borders, such as truck drivers, government and emergency response officials, to be fully vaccinated beginning on Jan. 22, the administration planned to announce Tuesday.

A senior administration official said the requirement, which the White House previewed in October, brings the rules for essential travelers in line with those that took effect earlier this month for leisure travelers, when the U.S. reopened its borders to fully vaccinated individuals.

Essential travelers entering by ferry will also be required to be fully vaccinated by the same date, the official said. The official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity to preview the announcement.

The rules pertain to non-U.S. nationals. American citizens and permanent residents may still enter the U.S. regardless of their vaccination status, but face additional testing hurdles because officials believe they more easily contract and spread COVID-19 and in order to encourage them to get a shot.

As if the country isn’t bad off enough, Biden is going to make it much worse. More people will lose their jobs and people, who receive the services of these ‘essential travelers’, will most certainly be affected. I can also see this impacting the supply chain again to some degree, as if Biden’s mandates haven’t caused enough damage already.

Meanwhile ‘nonresident travelers’, otherwise known as illegals coming across our southern border, can bring as much covid with them as they like. And they don’t even need a vaccine. They can come and bring all their friends and families.
