AZ Republicans Sue to Block Biden's Vaccine Mandate, Claim It Discriminates in Favor of Immigrants

The state of Arizona is preemptively suing Joe Bidenís administration over its forthcoming vaccine mandate, even though the text of the rule isnít published yet and it remains unclear when that will happen.

Bidenís order will require all federal employees and healthcare workers at facilities that receive Medicare or Medicaid funding to be vaccinated, as well as force employers of 100 individuals or more to implement mandatory policies that staff shall be vaccinated or tested for the novel coronavirus at least once a week. Additionally, employers could face fines of up to $14,000 per violation (after a grace period) and will be required to provide paid time off for workers to get vaccines. All told, the move could potentially affect up to 100 million workers. Other vaccine requirements, such as one that applies to anyone seeking to fly within the U.S., might be forthcoming.

The order has been vehemently opposed by Republicans, with 19 GOP governors almost immediately announcing their plans to sue and block it from ever entering force. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is still in the process of drafting the emergency rule.

In a complaint filed on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court of Arizona, state attorney general Mark Brnovich relied on the bizarre argument that because the Biden administration had not implemented vaccination requirements for undocumented immigrants, the rules violate the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. Brnovich wrote this constituted ďan unmistakableóand unconstitutionalóbrand of favoritism in favor of unauthorized aliens.Ē The complaint goes on to allege that Bidenís order also violates the rights of citizens to bodily integrity, principles of federalism, and the legislative authority of Congress.

1. It favors the immigrants why?

Because they are smart enough to get vaccinated?

3. According to the lawsuit, Biden is not requiring immigrants to be vaccinated

I thought he was
He should.
Many who come here are not vaccinated
But I thought all immigrants in federal facilities were required to be vaccinated.
They may have a case if he is not requiring it.

5. How Could We Require Anything...

...from undocumented people?
If they're undocumented, we don't really know if or where they exist.
They're off the grid, as much as possible, for a reason.
So, how could you require someone you're not sure exists to get a shot?
And, even if he did include them, how would we know when compliance occurs?
It's a lazy & stupid complaint by the whiner brigade.

4. Well this is a stupid argument even by their own standards lol...

Illegal immigrants dont HAVE Equal Protection Rights (according to them), so they can be vaxxed, not vaxxed, or thrown into a hole in the ground and it doesnt have any bearing on any Citizen whatsoever. Which SHOULD MEAN, that no Citizen should have standing to sue based on the difference of treatment.

This wont blow up in their face, not at all hahahaha!
