Very much like the ongoing Southern border crisis the Biden administration won’t mention, there is another crisis taking place at the same time, on top of inflation and the rise of gas prices. While juggling all the dilemmas his own party created, President Joe Biden is currently trying to fix the supply chain crisis.
Not to mention, President Biden is still pushing employers to force the COVID-19 jab on the American workforce. And although many Americans have bucked at the idea of a forced vaccine in order to work, President Biden somehow believes he can fix both the vaccine efforts and supply chain at the same time.
Starting January 22, 2022, President Biden will require all travelers, essential and non-resident, who cross U.S. borders to be fully vaccinated. In short, this new vaccine push by the Biden administration is a direct aim at the trucking industry.

The Associated Press wrote, “President Joe Biden now requires essential, nonresident travelers crossing U.S. land borders, such as truck drivers, to be fully vaccinated beginning on Jan. 22.”
While confusing, it should be noted that there are currently numerous cargo ships still anchored off the coast due to the lack of workforce to unload them.
As for the trucking industry, it is facing its own crisis as it is currently short 80,000 drivers. That is a record high according to the President and CEO of the American Trucking Association, Chris Spear. He has already admitted the shortage is partly due to the government overreach when it comes to COVID-19.
Speaking with reporters, Spear said that a staggering 37% of drivers refuse to take the COVID-19 shot. “In our sample survey of our fleets, it came back as 37% of our drivers not only said “no” – but “hell no””.
Warning President Biden of the potential of losing more drivers given the COVID-19 mandate, Spear added, “Be careful what you wish for here.”
