Republican Biden explodes with fury over vaccine mandate: ‘Absolutely unconstitutional’
Biden announced measures last week that would require federal workers and private sector workers in businesses with more than 100 employees to be vaccinated or take a COVID test weekly as part of an action plan to combat the virus .
“We’ve been patient, but we’re running out of patience and your refusal has cost us all,” Biden said from the White House. “It’s not about freedom or personal choice. It’s about protecting yourself and those around you.”
The mandate, which is expected to impact 100 million Americans in an array of jobs, including health care, directly affects the private sector. Republicans described the move as an “unconstitutional” act of federal coercion that must be challenged or opposed.
Specially, Arizona lawsuit The mandate contrasts with the lack of a mandate for those entering the country illegally through the US southern border, where migrant encounters have increased – with more than 212,000 in July alone. While about 40% of those encounters result in expulsion through Title 42 public health protection, many other migrants have been left in the US, raising concerns about the risk of potential COVID-19 spread.
“There can be no serious or scientific discussion about how to stop the spread of COVID-19 that doesn’t start at our southern border,” Branovich said.

The lawsuit argues that the mandate violates the equal protection clause, allegedly favoring immigrants who have come into the country illegally over US citizens.
“While the precise outline of the federal vaccination mandate is not yet clear, violations of the equal protection clause are already clear and egregious,” the brief says. “In short: Unauthorized aliens will not be subject to Any Vaccination requirements even if issued directly in the United States (where most will remain), while broadly a hundred crore US citizens will be subject to unprecedented vaccination requirements.”
“This reflects an unmistakable – and unconstitutional – brand of favoritism in favor of unauthorized aliens,” it says.
It also cites a retweet from White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klein, who retweeted the claim that the move was the “final work-around” for the federal government to require vaccines.

“The inadvertent entry in the preceding paragraph makes all actions of the Administration constitutionally questionable,” it says. “These other violations will be the subject of future challenges.”
Other Republican states have also indicated they intend to sue the administration as well.
“This is a gross, tyrannical power grab that stands no chance in court,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said. “I’ll be suing this disastrous admin very soon.”
