Biden: Undocumented immigrants should get vaccine without ICE targeting them

Source: The Hill

BY JORDAN WILLIAMS - 02/27/21 08:18 AM EST




President Biden said Friday that undocumented immigrants should be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine without fear of being targeted by U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Biden make the remark during an interview with Univision during his visit to a vaccination site in Texas.

“I want to make sure they are able to get vaccinated and so they’re protected from COVID without the ICE or anyone interfering,” Biden said. “They should… not be arrested for showing for being able to get a vaccination.”

Biden also said he plans to make sure undocumented immigrants have food, noting that his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief proposal increases funding for nutrition assistance.

1. Why in the world would the RW not want the people they hire illegally to watch their children, ...

... clean their houses, serve their food, cook their food, handle their landscaping, harvest their food not be vaccinated???

But I am glad we're correcting the terms of the conversation: there are undocumented workers, and illegal employers.

We've been putting the wrong people on the bus to detention.

3. because they don't understand contagious disease

They think a vaccine preventing a deadly disease should be a reward to those they think are "good" people, meaning those just like them.

That assumes they don't already think the vaccine is a devious plot by Bill gates to insert trackers.

4. Oh they're incredibly dumb about that too

by claiming unvaccinated undocumented immigrants were bringing COVID across the Southern border as if anyone was vaccinated against COVID back then.

And for all their talk about stealing jobs and helping small businesses, it's often small farms and small construction businesses who hire undocumented farm workers.

5. A Virus doesnt know if you're here legally or not. It'll spread any way it can.

Vaccinate everyone
