Arizona sues Biden administration over COVID-19 vaccine mandate
FIRST ON FOX: Arizona on Tuesday sued the Biden administration over President Biden's sweeping vaccinate mandates that affect federal employees and private businesses with more than 100 employees -- the first lawsuit against a policy that Republicans have slammed as an example of federal overreach.
"The federal government cannot force people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The Biden Administration is once again flouting our laws and precedents to push their radical agenda," Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement.
Specifically, the Arizona lawsuit contrasts the mandates with the lack of mandate for those entering the country illegally via the U.S. southern border, where there has been a surge in migrant encounters – with more than 212,000 in July alone. While approximately 40% of those encounters result an expulsion via Title 42 public health protections, many other migrants have been released into the U.S., which has led to concerns about the risk of potential COVID-19 spread.
"There can be no serious or scientific discussion about containing the spread of COVID-19 that doesn’t begin at our southern border," Brnovich said.
The lawsuit argues that the mandate violates the Equal Protection Clause by allegedly favoring migrants who have come into the country illegally over American citizens.

While I'm glad... this may be the first but certainly won't be the last.
I also don't think this will be the last COVID thread...
"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."
