The lawsuit, filed Monday on behalf of Jason Payne, argues that the mandate is illegal and unconstitutional. It also said that Payne has natural immunity to COVID-19 after contracting and recovering from the virus in 2020. Payne “denies” to receive the vaccine. As a result, he is promised that he will lose his job, according to the lawsuit.

Hamilton said in an interview with Granthshala News, “No matter how much a president wants to attack certain specific problems…” and in our federal system of government, this is not the case where the federal government has authority unless Congress does not act otherwise.

“It’s still a very, very big deal because it involves a huge number of federal employees and also because this is an area where the Biden administration below the president has acted completely against the law because they wanted to.” There are results,” Hamilton said.
