Deadline Approaching for CBP Agents to Get Vaccinated, or Face the Consequences

This mandate could cut the number of border patrol agents by more than half, according to Fox News

The November 22 deadline for Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents to get the Covid-19 vaccine is approaching, and the Biden administration is remaining firm in their threat to terminate agents who do not report that they have received it. This mandate could cut the number of border patrol agents by more than half, according to Fox News

Fox News reports, “according to the document [obtained from a source within CBP], as of October 25, 2021, 48% of border patrol agents have not responded to the reporting mandate. Of the 52% who had reported their vaccination status, 90% reported having received one or more COVID-19 jabs.”

An October 30 email from President Biden obtained by Fox News, demands that CBP supervisors order their employees to report their vaccination status by November 8, and threatens the supervisors if they do not. The email reads, “Supervisors who fail to have the required discussions with their employees will be subject to potential discipline for insubordination, up to removal from federal service.” In the email, President Biden includes “discussion points” and a log that supervisors are required to maintain and submit regarding their discussions with employees. Former acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan told Fox News that the requirement for supervisors to speak to each of their 64,000 employees is a severely time-consuming task. This is especially not easy when the border crisis is raging. 

Morgan argued that when an agency has to pressure supervisors to this extent, it shows that the mandate has been a “colossal failure,” and having to “strong-arm” leadership is a “red flag.” A CBP source told Fox News that employees are receiving multiple emails each day regarding the Covid-19 vaccine, and they include videos of CBP or Homeland Security employees who have been affected by it. Some Border Patrol agents who have spoken to Fox News said that they actually do have the vaccine, but “object to the mandate, particularly considering there is no such mandate for those crossing the border illegally.”

The crisis at the southern border is intensifying with over 192,000 migrants encountered in September and more than 1.7 million in the 2021 fiscal year; however, the full data on the number of illegal immigrants released into the U.S. is yet to be released from the Department of Homeland Security. 

The threat of losing over half of CBP agents includes ports of entry in addition to the southern border and other areas as well. Still, President Biden is firm in his order for them to either get vaccinated or face the consequences.

    I am a federal government employee, I prefer not to say where. November 22 is the deadline to be fully vaccinated, which means you had to have had the shot two weeks before that (this last Monday the 8th). I have “crossed the Rubicon”, there is no way for me or any other federal government employee to “be in compliance” if they have not already had the shot.

    Complete jackass regime. They can do anything now that their election rigging has essentially gone unchallenged.

    Biden’s government goons won’t let the CBP agents do their jobs anyway. Who could blame them if they “called in sick” until further notice.

Remote Learning Lowered Test Scores in Every State; Minority Students Hit the Worst

Remote Learning

A paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) shows remote learning has had a negative impact on students’ test scores in every state. Not only were students across the country affected, minority students were impacted the most.

According to the publication, remote learning led to declines in test scores for English and math, when compared to scores of students who went to schools with more in-person learning. “Our research shows that test score losses are significantly larger in districts with less in-person learning,” said Emily Oster, professor of economics at Brown University.

“This suggests, yes, that virtual learning was – and is – less effective than in-person learning, at least as measured by school-based testing” added Oster. “Passing rates in math declined by 14.2 percentage points on average; we estimate this decline was 10.1 percentage points smaller for districts fully in-person,” the study found.

The research combined “district-level schooling mode data from the 2020-21 school year,” “district-level test score data from 2015 to 2021” and “demographic data from the NCES,” according to the study.

Data was collected from students in third to eighth grades in 12 states: Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Rhode Island, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Score declines showed variations by state, as well. Virginia “which had the most complete virtual learning time, along with Colorado, saw an almost 32% drop on math test scores in the 2020-21 school year when compared to the 2018-19 school year” reports Tampa Free Press.

Wyoming, however, “which had the most in-person learning, along with Florida, saw just a 2.3% drop in English, the study found.”

“Changes in English Language Arts (ELA) were smaller than math scores overall, but drops in scores were greater in districts with larger black and Hispanic populations and students eligible for free and reduced lunch prices” reports Tampa Free Press.

“Districts that have a larger share of black and Hispanic students and less in-person schooling also saw a greater decline in ELA test scores than those with more in-person schooling. “
