Republicans Fighting To Get COVID Vaccine To Americans Before Illegal Immigrants

The Democrats are trying to prioritize vaccine distribution to illegal immigrants first.

As millions of American citizens continue to wait to get vaccinated against the China-originated novel coronavirus, the Biden administration has directed “equal access to the COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine distribution sites for undocumented immigrants.”

“It is a moral and public health imperative to ensure that all individuals residing in the United States have access to the vaccine,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a press release issued Monday. “DHS encourages all individuals, regardless of immigration status, to receive the COVID-19 vaccine once eligible under local distribution guidelines.”

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) blasted Biden for effectively allowing illegal immigrants to “jump ahead of other Americans” who wish to be vaccinated.

“In President Biden’s first week and a half, two weeks in office, we’ve seen millions, potentially, of jobs in America destroyed, but now you’re looking at his latest plan on the vaccine,” Scalise said during an appearance on Fox News. “He inherited a great plan from President Trump through ‘Operation Warp Speed,’ where we’re gonna be vaccinating 100 million Americans in the next 100 days, and what has President Biden done?”

“First we exposed he was trying to prioritize Gitmo terrorists over Americans in getting the vaccine,” Scalise highlighted. “They pulled back on that after we exposed it. But then, now, he’s saying that people who came here illegally can jump ahead of other Americans who have been waiting to get the vaccine on that prioritization.”

After intense backlash, the Biden administration halted plans on Saturday to begin offering vaccinations to the 40 prisoners detained at Guantanamo Bay, where alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammad is being held, The Daily Wire reported.

“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We’re pausing the plan to move forward, as we review force protection protocols,” said a statement from Pentagon press secretary John Kirby. “We remain committed to our obligations to keep our troops safe.”

“So what is this priority?” Scalise questioned Biden. “I thought we were supposed to be looking out for hard-working families. We’re trying to get our economies opened. We’re trying to get our schools safely reopened, and you do that by vaccinating everybody who wants to get the vaccine.”

“Clearly not everybody who wants to get it has been able to get that vaccine, and now President Biden’s gonna allow people who come here illegally to get the vaccine before some Americans who have been waiting for months,” Scalise blasted. “It’s mind-boggling that this is his plan, and by the way, it sets back his 100 day plan because there’s only so much vaccine to go around.”

The press release from the Biden administration regarding illegal immigrants and the COVID-19 vaccine, issued Feb. 1, reads in full:

DHS and its Federal government partners fully support equal access to the COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine distribution sites for undocumented immigrants. It is a moral and public health imperative to ensure that all individuals residing in the United States have access to the vaccine. DHS encourages all individuals, regardless of immigration status, to receive the COVID-19 vaccine once eligible under local distribution guidelines.
DHS carries out its mission, including all areas within its COVID-19 response, without discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, nationality, or other protected class, and in compliance with law and policy. Further, DHS supports the equitable and efficient distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine to all populations, including historically underserved communities.
To reach underserved and rural communities, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in collaboration with federal partners, will coordinate efforts to establish and support fixed facilities, pop-up or temporary vaccination sites, and mobile vaccination clinics. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection will not conduct enforcement operations at or near vaccine distribution sites or clinics. Consistent with ICE’s long-standing sensitive locations policy, ICE does not and will not carry out enforcement operations at or near health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities, except in the most extraordinary of circumstances.
DHS is committed to ensuring that every individual who needs a vaccine can get one, regardless of their immigration status.

  1. More proof of democraps working the illegals for potential votes and it includes the criminal terrorist cause they want to make it legal for all criminals to vote. Democraps have one agenda POWER OVER THE PEOPLE not of the people. And if we don’t fight back they will win. Complainensie is what they want, let the government rule everything not the people. Give up all yer rights so the USA can an will be ruled by socialist leftist marxist COMMIE CRIMINALS. Let’s get the conservatives of this nation together and legally get rid of all of the swamp creatures in the government, an if that doesn’t work then, KATY BAR THE DOOR AND KEEP YER POWDER DRY !!!

  2. Have you ever wondered why the democraps picked a “donkey” for their mascot symbol? One main reason STUMBERNESS the main trait of a lying jackass mule brained group of democraps. Not all dems are democraps these are the ones who have seen the ugliest of their party and would like to see power of the people again and make America great again when all of that happens then we all profit from it in one form or another. Biden wants UNITY but only for the swamp creatures. Time for a main drain by those who represent the people.

  3. The Biden administration is a continuation of the Obama agenda. Anti-American from the get go. Kill as many jobs as you can, kill or at least strain our relationship with Canada, reverse everything un-popular program started under the Obama/Buden administration and killed under President Trump. Invite Millions of people from Central and South America into our country when we know that 30% will on average become dependent immediately and that number will rise to 70% by the time ten years pass. We also know that between 2015 and 2018 the illegals sent Dollars home at the rate of One Hundred Fifty Billion per year and with the reductions in illegals under President Trump the illegals only sent One Hundred Thirty Billion Dollars all for which our Country received NOTHING, Zero, Nada.
