Republican Introduces Bill to Congress to Ban Vaccine Passports Across America

Republican Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) has introduced new legislation to Congress that bans Joe Biden's federal agencies from creating so-called "vaccine passports" across America.

Biggs introduced the legislation Thursday in an attempt to block the federal government from forcing Americans to prove they have been vaccinated before they can go about their daily lives.

Vaccine passports are a method some have purposed as a way to prove whether or not an individual has been vaccinated from the coronavirus before they can enter stores, restaurants, or use public transport.

While many Democrats claim such a system will be required before reopening businesses and the travel industry, Republicans in Congress have condemned the idea.

The move has been slammed by conservatives as an invasion of privacy and an opening for government surveillance.

"I am profoundly disturbed that the Biden Administration would even consider imposing vaccine passports on the American people," Biggs said in a statement Thursday.

"My private healthcare decisions—and yours—are nobody else’s business," Biggs added.

"Vaccine passports will not help our nation recover from COVID-19, instead, they will simply impose more Big Brother surveillance on our society."  

Biggs for comment that the White House alleged it would support a vaccine passport program appears to be at odds with their public stance on the subject earlier this week, however.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed Tuesday that Biden opposes passport vaccines.

"Let me be very clear on this," Psaki said during a press briefing. 

"I know there's been lots of questions.

"The government is not now, nor will we be, supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential."

She added, "There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential."

Some nations in Europe, along with Israel, are already using vaccine passports or are developing similar tracking methods.

Hawaii has floated the idea of instating a vaccine passport for travelers to their state, and New York became the first state to roll out a digital vaccine tracker, called the "Excelsior Pass."

Two Republican state legislators told Fox News that they are planning on introducing legislation to ban vaccine tacking methods, calling the invasion of privacy a "slippery slope."

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott have also already issued executive orders banning vaccine passports in their states.
