‘You want the fox to guard the hen house? I mean, give me a break’
If so-called “vaccine passports” are required by the Biden administration or private companies, Florida Republian Gov. Ron DeSantis promised Monday he would take “executive action” in his state.
“You want the fox to guard the hen house? I mean, give me a break,” DeSantis said. “I think this is something that has huge privacy implications. It is not necessary to do.”

A digital “vaccine passport” would require customers to provide proof of vaccination to enter a store or a form of transportation.
The governor noted that sometime this week, 3.5 million seniors will have been vaccinated in the state, about 75% of that population.
He said it’s important to “take care” of that vulnerable population.
“But at the same time, we are not going to have you provide proof of this, just to be able to live your life normally,” DeSantis said.
“I’m going to be taking some action, in an executive function, emergency function, here very shortly.”
On Monday, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., told Fox News that the Democrats’ move to require vaccine IDs to conduct “basic daily activities” undercuts their rationale for opposing voter IDs.
“If under Democrat logic, you should need an ID to enter even a grocery store, surely there wouldn’t be an objection to showing an ID to legally vote,” he said.
House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said the Biden administration “doesn’t seem to care about passports when it comes to illegal migrants crossing the southern border.”
