Independent Women's Voice

We believe our government should take all reasonable measures to protect Americans and immigrants alike from infectious diseases to prevent a worsening public health crisis.

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires all legal immigrants to be vaccinated, there are no vaccination requirements for illegal immigrants, temporary visa holders, or visitors to the U.S. 

As a matter of our national public health, it is imperative that the administration redouble their efforts to secure our borders. Further, the CDC should be directed to take action to ensure that all who enter our country show proof of vaccination.  

Infectious diseases are an equal opportunity scourge, though they harm the most vulnerable--babies, the ill, and the elderly--the most. Americans face increasingly dangerous health risks as diseases like measles and tuberculosis spread at an alarming rate. As previously eradicated infections re-emerge around the world, including in our country, immigrants and asylum seekers also face serious, and even deadly, risks.

To prevent an impending national public health crisis, we must secure our porous borders and ensure that immigrants and others come to the U.S. legally and with verified vaccination histories.
