White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted on Monday that the Biden regime will not be asking the horde of illegal immigrants crossing the u.S. southern border for proof of vaccination or administering COVID tests because “it’s not the same thing” as requiring vaccines for u.S. citizens or people who fly into the country.
“Is somebody asking the foreign nationals who are walking into Del Rio, Texas and setting up camps on this side of the border for proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Psaki on Monday.
“Well first of all, I can rea- rea- [sic], I can, I can readress for you, or retalk you through what steps we take,” Psaki stammered. When pressed by Doocy, who asked “So if somebody walks into the country right across the river, does somebody ask them to see their vaccination card?” she claimed illegal immigrants can be “assessed” for if they have “symptoms.”

After Doocy continued to ask yet again if proof of vaccination was required, a visibly uncomfortable Psaki snapped, “They’re not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time, I don’t think it’s the same thing, it’s not the same thing, these are individuals as we’ve noted and as we’ve been discussed, we are expelling individuals based on Title 42 specifically because of COVID. Because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering posing a threat to the community and also to the migrants themselves.”
Psaki’s admissions that the regime will apply far more lenient standards to illegal migrants than to foreign tourists and U.S. citizens echoed theories advanced by vaccine skeptics, who claim that the regime is wholly unconcerned with preventing the spread of COVID and the Delta variant among illegal immigrants.
