We thought it was outrageous when New York Gov. Kathy Hochul signed an executive order terminating the employment of nurses and hospital workers statewide if they weren’t vaccinated. These are likely people who worked on the front lines through the entire pandemic, even before there was a vaccine. She said she’d be activating the National Guard to take the places of the fired employees.

Now we’re hearing from the Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee that Border Patrol agents who aren’t fully vaccinated by November will be terminated.

Is there any federal agency that gets less help from the government than the Border Patrol?

So it looks like essential workers are the ones facing termination if they’re not vaccinated.
