Two congresswomen presented a resolution protesting President Biden’s plans to leave citizens at the end line for vaccination against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus. Instead, he’s giving priority to prisoners at the Guantanamo prison in Cuba.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) and Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-Iowa) do not support allowing terrorists serving time on the island’s maximum-security prison to get privileges over taxpayers, according to the Feb. 1 Conservative Review.
Guantanamo Bay prisoners getting vaccines before Americans
“It is inexcusable and un-American that President Biden is prioritizing vaccines for Gitmo terrorist detainees over American citizens, including veterans, first responders, 9/11 first responders, and seniors,” protested Stefanik.
Hinson was emphatic, “Americans need to get the vaccine before terrorists, and it’s upsetting to me that was even a question.”
She added, “I think we need to make sure the administration is held accountable for this, and that’s what I think this resolution does.”
Moreover, Stefanik and Hinson are not alone in their thinking. At least 36 other congressmen support their position, according to Rep. Mike Garcia (R-Calif.).
After the Pentagon announced on Jan. 30 that it would halt its plan to vaccinate detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Garcia expressed satisfaction and deplored that Biden had thought so.
“I am glad they have now backtracked on their original plan but am still concerned that the Biden administration ever considered such a scheme in the first place,” Garcia said.
He added, “It is an insult to hardworking Americans who have already been harmed by government-mandated lockdowns. The Biden administration must start putting Americans first.”
This is not the Biden administration’s only setback in the CCP vaccine distribution process, as its team lost sight of 20 million doses, which is a concern with the dollar value per dose somewhere north of $30. However, some estimates are a low as a few dollars per dose.
In addition to being criticized, this lack of stock control of the drugs would jeopardize their schedule’s fulfillment, according to the New York Post on Feb. 1.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed the shipment of 50 million vaccines, but can only say that a little more than 30 million were administered. So they can only hazard a guess as to how many are missing and where they might be.
