CNN reported on February 2 that the Biden administration said on Monday that undocumented immigrants should be vaccinated against the coronavirus, and federal authorities will not launch immigration enforcement operations at vaccine distribution points or clinics.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said: “It is necessary to ensure that all individuals living in the United States have access to vaccines, which is an ethical and public health need.
DHS encourages all individuals, regardless of immigration status, to get a COVID-19 vaccine once they meet local distribution guidelines.”
The report said that the statement of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security means that the Biden administration has changed significantly from the official statement under Trump’s presidency.
This is the first time that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has encouraged undocumented immigrants to vaccinate against the novel coronavirus.
