‘It’s a death trap’: ICE officers file OSHA complaint over illegal immigrant COVID risks:
The labor union for ICE officers has filed two workplace safety complaints about the Biden administration’s handling of illegal immigrants and COVID-19 at the border, saying federal employees processing and releasing the migrants face conditions that amount to “a death trap.”
The complaints say many of the federal workers are contracting COVID-19.
A Texas processing facility designed to hold fewer than 1,000 people at times has topped 4,000 per day. Employees have been falling ill after spending time in close quarters with illegal immigrants, who generally aren’t tested for coronavirus infection, according to the complaints.
The ICE employees work in a space right next to the sick ward, separated only by plastic sheeting. The facilities aren’t sterilized after a COVID-19 diagnosis, the National ICE Council told the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
“Many ICE officers are testing positive for COVID, in addition to lung infections, viral infections, diarrhea, etc.” the complaint charges.
At the Anzalduas Port of Entry, officers share port-a-potties with migrants who have not yet been tested for infection, the second complaint says.
Filing the complaints with OSHA was an attempt to use the Biden administration’s regulatory machinery against itself. The ICE union hopes to force the government to follow some of the same standards in handling illegal immigrants that President Biden has attempted to impose on American workers and businesses. --->READ MORE HERE

Illegal Aliens Remain Exempt from Biden’s Vaccine Mandate as Americans Face New Restrictions:
While President Joe Biden’s administration imposes new vaccine and Chinese coronavirus testing requirements for American citizens, illegal aliens remain exempt.
On Monday, the Biden administration issued guidelines that will require American citizens, those who are not vaccinated and those who are vaccinated, to present negative coronavirus tests before traveling back to the United States through a commercial flight.
For unvaccinated Americans, they will have to present negative coronavirus tests that were taken a day before re-entering the U.S. while those who are vaccinated will have to present a negative test taken three days before traveling.
The new requirements, beginning November 8, come after Biden ordered that all U.S. employers with 100 employees or more require that their workforce be vaccinated.
At the same time, border crossers and illegal aliens arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border remain exempt from vaccine mandates and testing requirements. In thousands of cases, not only are illegal aliens exempt but they are released into the U.S. interior while carrying coronavirus. --->READ MORE HERE
