Believing that the Biden government was flouting the laws “to promote its radical ideas,” Arizona authorities are filing a complaint against Joe Biden after he made anti-Covid vaccination mandatory for two-thirds of Americans.
Authorities in Arizona – a state headed by a Republican governor – announced on September 14 that they had filed the first complaint against Democratic President Joe Biden’s decision to make anti-Covid vaccination mandatory for two-thirds of American workers.
“The Biden government is once again flouting our laws and our jurisprudence to promote its radical ideas,” State Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement.
According to him, the president violates individual freedoms, federalism as well as the separation of powers and behaves like “a king”.
But in his complaint, which targets Joe Biden and several members of his government, he takes a particular angle of attack: Mark Brnovich accuses them of imposing vaccination on Americans but not on immigrants who entered the United States illegally, in rupture according to him with the principle of equality before the law.
The other questions “will be the subject of other complaints […] but this specific aspect – the unconstitutional discrimination between American citizens, legal residents and illegal aliens working in the United States – is ripe to be tried and struck down, ”according to the document sent to a federal court.
“There can be no serious or scientific discussion on how to curb the spread of Covid-19 if it does not start at our southern border,” assured the first magistrate of this border state with Mexico.
The border between Mexico and the United States has seen a record number of migrant arrivals during the pandemic and following a series of destructive storms in Central America.
After months of trying to convince Americans to get vaccinated, sometimes with rewards to back it up, Joe Biden took a more directive approach last week and announced that vaccination would be mandatory for some 100 million workers, federal government officials and private sector employees.
The announcement sparked an uproar among Republicans who, in the name of individual freedoms, immediately threatened to take legal action.
