Whistleblower claims unvaccinated border agents will be fired: GOP reps


​Two congressional Republicans say they have learned from a whistleblower that the Biden administration is warning Border Patrol ​agents they will be fired unless they receive the COVID vaccination by November — even as illegal immigrants crossing into the US don’t have to get the shot. ​

Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Tom McClintock of ​California sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas warning him that failure to support the federal law enforcement officials will “only make the Biden border crisis worse and make our country less secure.” 

“It is simply unbelievable that the Biden Administration will allow C​OVID-positive illegal aliens to surge across the border but will terminate dedicated law-enforcement officers who do not comply with Biden’s mandate,” ​the letter, posted on the House Judiciary Committee’s Twitter account and dated Tuesday, said.​
