I finally have had it. When I looked in detail at the new I-601 form one must fill out to get a green card without required vaccines, I finally wrote to our congressman who I have met several times and voted for. I'll keep you posted...
Dear Congressman Raul Labrador,
Now that you are on the immigration subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee, there needs to be another sort of reform for immigrants applying for a green card. Currently, those who are opposed to getting a battery of "required" vaccines including the dangerous HPV vaccine (required for women - see http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/jw-seeks-answers-to-payouts-made-to-victims-of-hpv-vaccines/), must pay $585 for a waiver based upon religious beliefs or moral convictions. They must fill out a form I-601 which was revised in 2012 and is even more onerous. We want to know who decides on what vaccines and how many are required for immigrating/green card? Who is pocketing the added $585? See http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-601.pdf I would like to work with you on changing immigration policy with regards to vaccination. Having a complete physical should suffice in terms of preventing disease-carriers from entering the country. Recently I was working with a German family who has been here for 9 years. Two adults and three children. They can scarcely afford the $585 X 5 fee with no guarantee that they will be accepted. Ran into the same thing for an Australian family but they had 4 children... This is a violation of the 4th Amendment, Bill of Rights - the right of the people to be secure in their persons ... shall not be violated. Blackstone stated: "No laws are binding upon the human subject which assault the body or violate the conscience." The immigration vaccine requirement is akin to state-sanctioned assault, especially in light of a person seeking a waiver from the required vaccines is now in the category of the mentally ill, sex deviants, criminals and HIV carriers and has to pay a huge extortion fee for the right to be secure in their person!!! This must stop and I would like your assistance in ending this form of state-sanctioned tyranny. Thank you!
