Par for the course from this lot. They are absolutely shocking, in what seems every department. It certainly won't have anything to do with future votes though, no chance....

As long certain parts press are simply not allowed to ask any questions at will, then the same disasters will carry on, as they are still getting a free pass from most. Biden promised he would be part of the most transparent Administration in History didn't he, they must be the least transparent ever. Read autocue, refuse questions and walk out.

Peter Doocy (Fox News) - "Why is it you are requiring anyone who has a job, or anyone who goes to school, to get the Covid-19 vaccine, but your not requiring that of migrants who continue walking across the southern border?"

Jen Psaki (Biden's spokesperson) - "Well our objective is to get as many people vaccinated as humanly possible, and so the presidents announcement yesterday was an effort to empower businesses, to give businesses the tools to protect their workforces, but we want more people to get vaccinated whether they are migrants or whether they are workers".

Doocy - "But it's a requirement for businesses with more than 100 people, it's not a requirement for migrants at the southern border, why? "

Psaki - "That's correct"


And that's all, no explanation forthcoming Plain

What about migrants that want to work in a business with more than 100 employees?
By:

When: 11 Sep 21 09:42
Also, why does Doocy first talk about "requiring anyone" and then about businesses with more than 100 people?

I assume migrants working in businesses of more than 100 people will have to be jabbed - so what's the issue here?

one might be forgiven for thinking this is just an excuse to attack migrants

*Also, why does Doocy first talk about "requiring anyone who has a job" and then about businesses with more than 100 people?

Also, why only southern border and not northern border?

Also, is this an attempt to blame the Texas numbers on migrants?

Also, are Cubans on dinghies responsible for Florida's numbers?

I am not clear what the link is here? Roughly 25% of Americans are not vaccinated, they have chosen not to. That is their choice.

Do the 100 or more employees of a business all have to work in the same building to qualify for a required jab or can they be dotted all around the States?  all a bit vague.
By:

When: 11 Sep 21 10:10
I would guess that it's simply based on the number of employees irrespective of which building they are in.

If the Biden admin wishes to impose restrictions and thinks that Americans should be vaccinated then they should not allow any migrants into the country without being vaxxed .

I'm still confused as the point being made here. Are migrants not subject to the "employers of more than 100" rule?
By:
lfc1971
When: 11 Sep 21 10:21
The employers of 100 or more rule means that all migrants entering the U.K. should either be vaxxers or turned back

Also, why does Doocy talk about vaccination being a requirement when people/businesses can alternatively produce a negative test once a week?
By:
edy
When: 11 Sep 21 10:22
Also, why do you, Tobermory, not mention the testing alternative?
By:
lfc1971
When: 11 Sep 21 10:24
A negative test should not be an adequate requirement for migrants

The government is trying to persuade Americans to get vaccinated
They don’t have to persuade migrants , they tell them

A business has 10 branches each employing 10 workers they all need to get jabbed, but a business with say 90 employees that all work together in the same building wouldn't need to?

That’s not the point of the thread
The point is the Biden administration is allowing ( in theory maybe not in practice) millions of migrants into the US
A percentage of whom will have Covid

Sure is. In multiple Republican governed states there are next to no restrictions.

America imo should consider , if possible , isolating individual states
In an attempt to eliminate Covid state by state

It’s possible that republican states were infected initially by democratic states?

You can't just build a wall around Texas like that.

If I remember correctly, some states actually tried to limit interstate travel, or at least considered it, but it was ultimately  deemed that the consittion does not allow it (when it comes to covid).

Peter douchy just wastes every single question by trying to set traps for someone who is way to smart to fall for them.

There is a very simple and straightforward solution. Everyone should be vaccinated. However, there are around 25% of Americans, mostly white Trump supporting Republicans who refuse to do so for a number of reasons such as the believe Covid is a hoax, the vaccines will kill you, God will save you and some are even taking a horse wormer drug in the mistaken belief that it cures Covid.

They can of course always plea with people, but you know how it goes in the US. If the plea comes from Democrats, the cringe-right fringe of the Republicans would travel extra hard just to own the libs.

this Doocy fella sounds very concerned by COVID. he must fiercely condemn GOP-controlled states that don't enforce restrictions to stop the spread of the virus?
By:

If the president is not prepared to enforce restrictions on non Americans - he shouldn’t be preaching to any American on the subject , sorry

Such as Texas. The Republican governed state yesterday had 17,208 new Covid cases and 412 new deaths.

And he wants to let people into the country without any checks.

11% more than Texas. but it's population is 48% larger. someone should tell Doocy he'd be livid and no doubt do a piece about it

Republican Governed Florida has over a million currently active Covid cases and rising rapidly. There is only so many times you can ask the mostly elderly white Republican Trump supporting residents to be vaccinated.
