The Biden administration is not planning to vaccinate the nearly 200,000 migrants who are showing up on the border each month, despite imposing mandates on federal workers and private businesses nationwide.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed during a press briefing Friday that many employees would be required to get the coronavirus vaccine but that people in federal custody at the U.S.-Mexico border would not be required, nor be able, to get it.
Since President Joe Biden took office in January, more than 1 million people have attempted to cross the southern border illegally. Of that 1 million, 660,000 were immediately sent back across the border, while 410,000 were taken into custody, according to federal data. The vaccines were rolled out nationwide this spring, as illegal migration levels at the southern border hit 21-year highs.
