Biden Claims Unvaccinated Illegal Immigrants Are Sent Back When Trying To Cross The Border
On Tuesday, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked President Joe Biden about “untested and unvaccinated” illegal immigrants crossing America’s southern border – to which President Joe Biden claimed that such individuals are sent back across the border.
Doocy challenged the president on how his border policies could be having an impact on the coronavirus pandemic.

Doocy Asks Biden About Unvaccinated Illegal Immigrants
“You just said ‘there is no wall high enough and no ocean wide enough to protect us from the virus,’” Doocy said to Biden on Tuesday.
Doocy added, “So what is the thinking behind letting untested and unvaccinated migrants cross the southern border into U.S. cities in record numbers?”
Biden said that he will continue his policy of sending unvaccinated people who arrive at the border back, but that unaccompanied children must be kept here.

“We have not withdrawn the order that is sometimes criticized saying that unvaccinated people should go back across the border,” Biden said.
The president added, “But unaccompanied children is a different story. Because the most humane thing to do is to test them and to treat them and not send them back alone.”
As The Political Insider previously noted: Bill Melugin, a national correspondent for Fox News, tweeted a video of a large group of hundreds of illegal immigrants turning themselves in at a ballpark in La Joya, Texas, something he says happens “all day long” and “nonstop.”
