(DCWatchdog.com) – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, a United States federal judge issued a court order that stops President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate from being imposed and enforced on all federal employees nationwide.
Judge Jeffrey Brown’s nationwide court-ordered injunction blocking Biden’s vaccine mandate for federal employees is the first lower court that we are aware of that has issued a national order impacting all federal employees.
According to the Federal News Network:
“A federal judge in Texas ruled Friday that the Biden Administration cannot enforce its vaccine mandate for federal employees, issuing an injunction that halts the requirement nationwide.
“Judge Jeffrey Brown found the president had no legal authority to require feds to get vaccinated, saying that while he has broad power over federal employment policies, those authorities aren’t sweeping enough to justify the September executive order that implemented the requirement.
“‘The court notes at the outset that this case is not about whether folks should get vaccinated against COVID-19—the court believes they should,’ he wrote. ‘It is not even about the federal government’s power, exercised properly, to mandate vaccination of its employees. It is instead about 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. That, under the current state of the law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, is a bridge too far.’” [emphasis added]
