Joe Biden triggered a crisis at the southern border by canceling President Trump’s security efforts there, the construction of a wall, the requirement that asylum-seekers wait in Mexico until their court hearings were held, and more.

The result was a well-heard message to the world that America’s border was open and those reaching it could count on the benefits the nation provides. The result was a flood of hundreds of thousands arriving in a constant stream.
Now, the president is presuming to address that problem by dismissing thousands of Customs and Border Patrol agents. The Free Beacon revealed nearly one in five CBP members “have not received a COVID-19 vaccine.”
And that puts thousands of critically needed employees “in line for termination as the Biden administration struggles to secure the border.”
Internal documents reviewed by the Beacon said some 18% of the workforce still need COVID shots, “meaning about 12,000 employees risk losing their jobs if they do not receive a religious or medical exemption by Nov. 22.”
The Free Beacon explained the significance of the issue: “The vaccination push comes as CBP faces strained resources in managing the immigration crisis on the southern border. As a record number of illegal immigrants attempt to cross into the United States, agents on the ground say they lack the manpower to patrol designated areas. Meanwhile, agents who process migrants with asylum claims are working in facilities frequently beyond maximum capacity.”
Among the actual border agents, the number who could be removed adds up to about 5,000, the report said.
“There are just a lot of agents who are refusing to get the vaccine,” an agent on the southern border told the Free Beacon, on condition he not be identified. “There’s a 50/50 chance they’re all just going to get fired or placed on leave without pay. The union is involved, but not sure there is much for them to stand on.”
Biden revealed in September a government-wide effort to require all employees to take the experimental shots.
“We can’t lose anybody and expect to secure the border. So we do believe this vaccine mandate—while we will encourage people to get vaccinated, we fully support the individual’s right to choose what they put in their body, especially as the ‘science’ changes so often,” explained Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council.
Meanwhile, Fox News reported that CBP officials have told supervisors they must “push” their crews to take the shots – or face discipline themselves.
“In an Oct 30 email, obtained by Fox News, CBP references the Sept. 9 executive order by President Biden which mandates that all federal employees be fully vaccinated by Nov. 22,” the report explained.
That warned, “Pursuant to this requirement, all U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) supervisors are ordered to have a discussion with each of their employees (direct reports).”
The workers are to be told to upload their vaccination reports, and failing that will produce consequences for them.
Fox News reported former acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan believes that the fact the agency is having to push supervisors to get workers to accept the shot shows the Biden mandate is a “colossal failure.”
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
