The Biden Administration is calling on businesses to continue pushing the illegal COVID-19 vaccine dispite a federal court order freezing the mandate.
Acting Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters “We think people should not wait” after questioned on whether employers should require employees get vaccinated.
This comes following the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decision to put a temporary pause on the mandate, while judges decide whether or not to overturn it.
The administration is attempting to push the illegal vaccine mandate no matter the circumstances.
This is completely unconstitutional.
It seems the Biden Administration is counting on Americans not understanding their own basic rights as citizens of this country.
Ted Cruz called the administration “completely lawless.”
The Blaze has more on the Biden Administration encouraging Americans to ignore the federal court ruling:
The Biden administration said that businesses should ignore a federal court ruling against his vaccine mandate and implement it anyway.
"We think people should not wait," said White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre during Monday's media briefing. "They should continue to move forward and make sure that they're getting their workplace vaccinated."
A panel of judges in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Saturday that the vaccine mandate announced by President Joe Biden should be paused over concerns about its constitutionality. The lawsuit against the mandate was filed by a number of states including Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Utah.
Once again, Biden does not care about the law.
CNBC has more on his insistance for Americans to ignore it:
The Republican attorneys general in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Utah, as well as several companies, requested the pause. They argued that the requirements exceed the authority of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which will enforce the mandates, and amount to an unconstitutional delegation of power to the executive branch by Congress.
In its response Monday evening, the Biden administration asked the court to lift the pause, dismissing the states’ and companies’ claims of harm as “premature” given that the deadlines for vaccination and testing are not until January. The administration claimed that pausing the requirements “would likely cost dozens or even hundreds of lives per day” as the virus spreads. The Labor and Justice Departments also argued that OSHA acted within its authority as established by Congress.
The court-ordered pause came a day after the requirements went into effect, starting the countdown for businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure their staff have received the shots required for full vaccination by Jan. 4. After that date, unvaccinated workers must submit a negative Covid-19 test weekly to enter the workplace. All unvaccinated workers must start wearing face masks indoors at their workplaces starting Dec. 5.
Ted Cruz and others called out the administration for being lawless.
Jen Psaki once said that mandating this injection "is not the role of the federal government," yet Biden assumes we are all too dumb to remember.
