Biden: Illegal Immigrants Should Be Able to Get Vaccine without Fear of ICE:
President Biden said Friday that illegal immigrants in the U.S. should be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine without fear of being targeted by U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“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 in an interview with Univision during a visit to a vaccination site in Texas. “They should . . . not be arrested for showing for being able to get a vaccination.”
The Department of Homeland Security announced earlier this month that ICE would not conduct enforcement activities at or near vaccination sites.
“It is a moral and public health imperative to ensure that all individuals residing in the United States have access to the vaccine,” the agency said in a statement then. “DHS is committed to ensuring that every individual who needs a vaccine can get one, regardless of their immigration status.” --->READ MORE HERE
House Dems added $40M to $100M ‘Pelosi subway’ pork in COVID bill:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Friday he was appalled that Democrats added $40 million to a subway near Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district overnight in the House Rules Committee after criticism of $100 million already earmarked for the project.
Republicans on Friday will force a vote on redirecting the total $140 million — contained in a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bi
“Our proposal would shift the first $100 million and now the extra $40 million that was added overnight that was allocated to Nancy Pelosi’s subway to grants that would be used for mental health for children,” McCarthy said at a press conference.
The funds for an underground rail line from the San Francisco area to Silicon Valley are the most prominent example of pork decried by conservatives opposed to President Biden’s $1.9 trillion relief bill, which is expected to pass the House on Friday night. --->READ MORE HERE
