The Biden White House is requiring all non-U.S. citizens – including Mexican and Canadian truck drivers – to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter the country via all land ports of entry and ferry terminals. The move is certain to exacerbate existing supply chain issues in the United States.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the new policy on January 22nd:
“The Department of Homeland Security will require that non-U.S. individuals entering the United States via land ports of entry or ferry terminals along our Northern and Southern borders be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and be prepared to show related proof of vaccination,” explained Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas.
“These new restrictions will apply to non-U.S. individuals who are traveling for both essential and non-essential reasons. They will not apply to U.S. citizens, Lawful Permanent Residents, or U.S. nationals,” outlined the DHS.
The DHS details how all “non-U.S. individuals traveling to the United States via land ports of entry or ferry terminals, whether for essential or non-essential reasons, must” be able to do the following:
- verbally attest to their COVID-19 vaccination status;
- provide proof of a CDC-approved COVID-19 vaccination, as outlined on the CDC website;
- present a valid Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI)-compliant document, such as a valid passport, Trusted Traveler Program card, or Enhanced Tribal Card; and,
- be prepared to present any other relevant documents requested by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer during a border inspection.
The decision comes amidst America’s grocery stores facing unprecedented shortages and bare shelves, a problem which could be exacerbated by the policy given its relevance to truck drivers attempting to enter the U.S. via the Mexican or Canadian border. The measure also follows pharmaceutical giants reaching unprecedented levels of lobbying – both in terms of spending and the number of personnel hired – despite studies showing vaccines are not necessarily effective in preventing COVID-19 contraction.
The crackdown also follows the Biden regime – whose open borders continue to be exploited by pedophiles and human traffickers – allowing illegal aliens residing in the U.S. to use criminal arrest warrants as a form of documentation to travel in airports.
