17 Republican governors ask Biden to drop COVID jab mandate for foreign travelers – LifeSite

A group of 17 Republican governors, including Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Brian Kemp of Georgia, Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma and Glenn Youngkin of Virginia, sent a letter to President Joe Biden Wednesday asking him to lift COVID jab requirements for foreign travelers entering the United States. 

“Over the last several months, countries around the world dropped mandatory vaccine requirements for visitors from Australia to Israel to almost every country in Europe,” the letter states. “In total, as of July 2022, 72 countries dropped all COVID-19 testing and vaccination requirements for travelers.” 

“The continued requirements, even as other countries are moving in the opposite direction, put us at a competitive disadvantage as our states work to welcome international travelers, attract foreign business prospects, and host global athletic competitions,” the letter continues.
