On Tuesday, Arizona sued Biden over his vaccine mandate requiring federal employees — but not Congress — as well as healthcare workers and people who work for businesses with more than 100 employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Though Biden previously promised no nationwide mandates, he went back on that promise without warning and put more than 100 million Americans at risk of losing their livelihoods if they do not elect to get the jab.
“We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden as he sought to unilaterally expand the government’s control over us. “This is not about freedom or personal choice. It’s about protecting yourself and those around you.”
“The federal government cannot force people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The Biden Administration is once again flouting our laws and precedents to push their radical agenda,” Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement regarding the lawsuit, which attempts to upset Biden’s vaccination tyranny.
The lawsuit points out that Biden’s mandate does not include illegal immigrants and violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. Fox News reports:
Specifically, the Arizona lawsuit contrasts the mandates with the lack of mandate for those entering the country illegally via the U.S. southern border, where there has been a surge in migrant encounters – with more than 212,000 in July alone. While approximately 40% of those encounters result an expulsion via Title 42 public health protections, many other migrants have been released into the U.S., which has led to concerns about the risk of potential COVID-19 spread.
“There can be no serious or scientific discussion about containing the spread of COVID-19 that doesn’t begin at our southern border,” Brnovich said.
The lawsuit argues that the mandate violates the Equal Protection Clause by allegedly favoring migrants who have come into the country illegally over American citizens.
“Although the precise contours of the federal vaccination mandates are not yet clear, the violation of the Equal Protection Clause is already evident and egregious,” the brief says. “In a nutshell: unauthorized aliens will not be subject to any vaccination requirements even when released directly into the United States (where most will remain), while roughly a hundred million U.S. citizens will be subject to unprecedented vaccination requirements.”
“This reflects an unmistakable — and unconstitutional — brand of favoritism in favor of unauthorized aliens,” it says.
Other states, including Texas, are expected to join the fight against Biden’s unconstitutional actions.
