A federal judge blocked Biden’s C-19 vaccine mandate for federal workers this Friday.
Biden can’t impose this kind of a mandate, the US District Judge Jeffrey Brown announced a 20-page ruling.

Fed law states that the president “may prescribe regulations for the conduct of employees in the executive branch,” and government attorneys stated that the act of becoming jabbed is plainly conducted. The judge sided with the plaintiffs who claimed that the conduct cited must be workplace conduct for them to regulate it.
“So, is submitting to a COVID-19 vaccine, particularly when required as a condition of one’s employment, workplace conduct? The answer to this question became a lot clearer after the Supreme Court’s ruling earlier this month,” Brown stated.
“The Supreme Court has expressly held that a COVID-19 vaccine mandate is not an employment regulation. And that means the President was without statutory authority to issue the federal worker mandate,” he added.
Also, he continued saying that without entering the preliminary injunction, the fed workers who haven’t gotten the shots or been approved as an exemption face termination.

“Today’s decision by Judge Brown is a victory for the thousands of men and women who want to serve their government without sacrificing their individual rights,” Marcus Thornton, President of the group, stated.
“The 6,000+ members of Feds for Medical Freedom want nothing more than to continue their service to this country without being subjected to unconstitutional mandates. For the time being, the court’s ruling grants them that wish, but the fight is far from over. We will continue to pursue every lawful avenue available to ensure our members’ rights are respected, and their service is honored appropriately,” he added.
Plaintiffs said Biden “acted beyond his lawful delegated authority” in issuing the mandate and another for federal contractors that has been ruled against by several courts.
After Brown’s order was issued, the government appealed it to the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
