Court Blocks Vaccine Mandate for Federal Employees

Court Blocks Vaccine Mandate for Federal Employees

A federal judge in Texas blasted the Friday morning in no uncertain terms.

One week ago, the Supreme Court ruled against Biden’s diktat requiring companies with more than 100 employees to get vaccinated.

Today, a judge blocked the administration from forcing federal employees to get the jab.

As Newsmax reports:

Biden issued an order requiring about 3.5 million workers to get vaccinated by Nov. 22 or seek a religious or medical accommodation or face discipline or firing.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown said in his Friday order that at issue was whether the president “can, with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress, require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment.”

He added, “That, under the current state of the law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, is a bridge too far.”

Brown, appointed by President Trump, said that there were less invasive measures to protect public health, including masks and social distancing.

The Justice Department said it would appeal the ruling.
