Did Governor Greg Abbott Create a Fake Hotline to Report Illegal COVID-19 Jab Mandates?


On Wednesday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced a hotline for Texas employees to report illegal COVID-19 jab mandates.

The Republican governor stated the hotline was formed to combat the federal government’s unconstitutional mandates.

Read Governor Abbott’s press release:

My San Antonio explains:

Officials are also urging employees subjected to a vaccine mandate in violation of GA-40 to notify the Texas Workforce Commission by calling 800-939-6631 or emailing TWC will refer verified tips to the appropriate authorities for prosecution, according to Abbott’s statement.

The hotline comes after USAA, one of San Antonio’s largest employers, announced it is requiring its employees to confirm their vaccination status, vaccinated or not. The company is asking employees to certify their vaccine status to ensure it has a good understanding of who has been vaccines by January 4, 2022.

Earlier this year, Governor Abbott issued an executive order to ban COVID-19 jab mandates from any entity in the state of Texas.

However, some Texans question if Governor Abbott is all bark and no bite to protect Texans from medical tyranny and illegal mandates.

Reports indicate some companies have ignored Abbott’s executive order to enforce COVID-19 jab mandates on their employees.

A caller tested Abbott’s hotline to make a report on illegal COVID-19 jab mandates in Texas.

Watch below:

Texas Scorecard reported:

But despite Abbott’s characterization that he “created a hotline for employees to report illegal vaccine mandates in Texas,” the phone number connects dialers to the main number for the Texas Workforce Commission—not a dedicated hotline.

Once selecting a preferred language, a recording immediately directs those applying for unemployment benefits to press one on their keypads. For those looking to change their account PINs or addresses, press two. For questions and changes to existing claims, press three.

That’s it.

Even though the hotline was announced by Abbott on Wednesday afternoon, as of Thursday no option has been added to report a COVID vaccine mandate violation.

And talking to an operator doesn’t appear to help.

“I called it. I went ahead and used option #3 just to talk to someone,” Charlie T. commented on Facebook. “The workforce employee had NO CLUE what I was talking about. They put me on hold and never came back.”

“Hey Abbott get your Administration services under control. You are the Executive correct?” he added.

Meanwhile, the Republican Party of Texas and a growing number of GOP lawmakers are calling on Abbott to call the Legislature back for a fourth special session to pass legislation banning vaccine mandates.

Thus far, the governor has refused to do so.

It appears the public criticism may have forced Abbott’s office to update the TWC phone tree:

However, the best solution to ending illegal mandates on Texans is calling the legislature for a special session to pass anti-mandate legislation.
