Biden orders most US workers get vaxxed — but not illegal border crossers:
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday confirmed that the government isn’t requiring COVID-19 vaccines for people who illegally cross the US-Mexico border — despite President Biden’s new vaccine mandates for about two-thirds of US workers.
“That’s correct,” Psaki told Fox News reporter Peter Doocy at her daily press briefing.
Psaki gave the curt reply when Doocy asked, “It is a requirement for people at a business with more than 100 people. It is not a requirement for migrants at the southern border. Why?”
She did not elaborate.
Biden’s new vaccine mandates impact federal workers and contractors, employees of private companies of 100 or more people, health care workers and some teachers.
Psaki said that “some of these requirements are the next lever needed to get more people vaccinated.” --->READ MORE HERE

Businesses refusing new federal vax mandate face fines up to $13,600 per violation:
US businesses that flout the Biden administration’s drastic new COVID-19 vaccine mandate could be slapped with massive fines of up to $13,600 for each violation.
President Biden announced Thursday a new Department of Labor requirement that orders businesses with more than 100 employees to require their staff to get vaccinated or be tested weekly.
“And if a workplace refuses to follow the standard, the [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] fines can be quite significant,” White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients said during a press briefing Friday.
“Enforcement actions include fines up to $13,600 per violation.”
Federal workers and contractors won’t have a testing option in the sweeping new guidance that covers about two-thirds of the American workforce. --->READ MORE HERE
