Nightside with Dan Rea - Rundown for April 7, 2021

The Vaccine Passport and Hypocrisy. There are many, including the Boston Globe and Dan Rea, who believe that vaccine "passports" can help the country transition from pandemic mode into herd immunity. Are mandated vaccine credentials as onerous a burden as voter ID? Are you a hypocrite if you find one offensive and not the other?

The Border Wall Under President Biden. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says he may restart border wall construction to plug what he called “gaps” in the wall”. When President Biden came into office, he canceled the building of the border wall and halted Pentagon money flowing to the wall construction. Do you think this change of strategy indicates that the crisis at the Border is more serious than the Biden Administration has acknowledged so far?

NASA and Illegal Immigrants. The Biden Administration is looking for more appropriate housing for the illegal immigrant minors streaming over the border. HHS is asking NASA employees to participate in a 4 month "voluntary deployment" to help staff NASA facilities that would house migrants. In addition, the federal government will reimburse the "volunteers" for their travel and expenses. Does this NASA appeal indicate that the problem at the Border is getting worse?
