WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — According to newly obtained government documents, almost 22,000 employees of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have sought religious or medical exemptions from the Biden administration’s federal employee COVID-19 vaccine mandate, and all of these requests remain unprocessed.
After significant delays, the watchdog group Functional Government Initiative (FGI) obtained records after requesting documentation on numbers of applications, approvals, and denials for such exemptions.
A July 6 press release from FGI explains that “the documents that FGI received reveal that 22,000 DHS employees are at risk of termination for not bowing to the Administration’s demand that they receive multiple injections of the COVID-19 vaccine. These employees submitted religious or medical exemption waivers as required by DHS but have yet to learn how the department will handle their waiver requests. As a result, DHS has left these employees and their families wondering from week-to-week whether they’ll continue to have a job.”
FGI warns that key agencies essential to U.S. national security could see an enormous loss of employees if the applications are not resolved.
According to The Epoch Times, the exemption requests come from more than 8,100 Customs and Border Protection employees, 5,800 Transportation Security Administration workers, and 2,800 Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel.
“This uncertainty not only affects DHS employees and their families but also affects national security and the untamed border crisis,” FGI’s statement reads. “DHS cannot afford to lose a single employee. Laying off 22,000 employees would be a huge step in the wrong direction and put America’s national security at risk.”
Last September, Joe Biden issued a flurry of mandates requiring millions of American workers to receive experimental COVID-19 gene therapy injections, including approximately 3.5 million federal employees.
These mandates provoked a litany of lawsuits that eventually brought them before the Supreme Court, which on January 13 opted to block the private employer mandate while allowing the health worker mandate to remain in effect pending final resolution of the case.
Making its own way through the courts, a group of about 6,000 federal employees calling themselves Feds for Medical Freedom (FMF) successfully sued the Biden administration in district court challenging the constitutionality of the mandates.
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

On January 21, U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, ruled against the mandate for federal employees, citing the Supreme Court’s judgment against the mandate for private workers issued a week earlier.
“The Supreme Court has expressly held that a COVID-19 vaccine mandate is not an employment regulation,” Brown wrote at the time. “And that means the President was without statutory authority to issue the federal-worker mandate.”
After an appeal by the Biden administration, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Brown’s injunction in April before a three-judge panel, though the White House held off on enforcing the federal employee mandate until certain “procedural steps” were completed.
However, on June 27, the 5th Circuit agreed to reconsider its April ruling and reinstated the earlier injunction of the mandate until the case could be adjudicated before the court’s full 17 judge panel. Initial oral arguments are tentatively scheduled for the week of September 12.
