Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed a lawsuit on behalf of his state this week in opposition to the Biden administration’s vaccination mandate.
“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,” Brnovich mentioned.
The new coverage, which calls for that non-public employers with 100 or extra workers require vaccines or weekly assessments, is estimated to have an effect on a staggering 80 million U.S. residents.
Brnovich, who’s working for the U.S. Senate, is arguing that the coverage violates the nation’s Equal Protection Clause. Specifically, as a result of the Biden administration is refusing to mandate vaccinations for undocumented migrants coming into the southern border illegally, the brand new measure “protects the freedom and bodily autonomy [of the undocumented] more than American citizens.”
Brnovich’s workplace known as the coverage “one of the greatest infringements upon individual liberties, principles of federalism, and separation of powers ever attempted by an American President.”
To any affordable American who believes in medical freedom and autonomy from tyranny, the Biden mandate doubtless sounds absurd. But if the circuit courts (that are full of conservative judges, because of the Trump administration) are going to undercut it, the first query might be, is it unconstitutional?
Brnovich is basically arguing a discrimination case, provided that one class of citizen (unprotected aliens) are being handled starkly totally different than one other class (residents with inalienable rights protected by the structure). To win the case, his attorneys might want to show favoritism exists throughout the Biden administration in direction of unlawful aliens.
The Biden administration absolutely knew their mandate would come underneath heavy authorized scrutiny, however proceeded anyhow. Will they amend the mandate to additionally embrace unlawful aliens, thereby negating this one explicit lawsuit, but in addition destroying the goodwill with border jumpers that they so cherish? Goodwill that they hope will translate to votes throughout future election cycles? Only time will inform.
