Federal Appeals Court Halts Biden’s Business Vaccine Mandate
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry sued the federal government concerning the Biden administration's business vaccine mandate; he got some big news this weekend.
The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, in New Orleans, has temporarily halted with an emergency stay on the requirement that all business with more than 100 employees have to require their workers to get vaccinated or submit to wearing masks and getting tested for COVID-19 weekly.
Landry had this to say in a statement:
The president will not impose medical procedures on the American people without the checks and balances afforded by the constitution.
He went on to say that this action from the U.S. Court of Appeals stops President Biden's unlawful overreach of power.
Landry said that usually designs by a circuit court only take affect in a district (ours is Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas), however, the language written in this particular decision gives it precedence on a national level.
Landry talked in his statement on how important this decision is:
This is a great victory for the American people out there. Never before has the federal government tried in such a forceful way to get between the choices of an American citizen and their doctor. To me, that’s the heart of the entire issue.
At least 27 other lawsuits have been filed challenging the Biden administration's business vaccine requirements.
When asked, the administration said they believe that their requirements will outlast the challenges because they believe their safety rules preempt state laws.
