Tea Party Patriots Action Slams TSA’s “Outrageous” Extension of Covid-19 Vaccine Mandate to Enter U.S.


Atlanta, GA – Today, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) extended the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for foreign travelers. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement:

“The TSA’s decision to extend the Covid-19 vaccine mandate is outrageous, whether you consider it economically, diplomatically, or as a matter of human rights.  President Biden himself said the pandemic is over so the original justification for the mandate has lapsed.  Pre-pandemic, international tourism generated close to $2 trillion in U.S. economic activity, so denying entry to unvaccinated foreign guests is denying us untold billions in revenue.  And last but not least, as a matter of principle, no one should be forced to take a vaccine against their will, whether they’re an American or a foreign guest.  The Biden Administration is once again engaging in a gross abuse of power to no benefit.”
