Hold put on Biden Covid-19 Vaccine Mandate by US Appeals Court

On Friday, a federal appeals court upheld its decision to halt President Joe Biden order requiring COVID-19 vaccines for businesses with 100 or more employees, dismissing his administration’s appeal. Despite the Biden administration’s claims that delaying the vaccine mandate would result in dozens, if not hundreds, of deaths, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans affirmed its judgment.

The mandate is comprehensive. The order is a one-size-fits-all bludgeon that makes little effort to account for workplace variances (and workers). In the United States, vaccine requirements are a hotly debated topic. Supporters contend that they are necessary to halt the nearly two-year coronavirus outbreak, while opponents argue they are unconstitutional and limit individual liberty. The judges on the Fifth Circuit appeared to agree with the opponents.

Maintaining our constitutional system and the liberty of individuals to make deeply personal judgments based on their convictions is also in the public interest, even when those decisions irritate government officials. As a result, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a rule requiring businesses with at least 100 employees to vaccinate their employees or face weekly tests and face mask limitations.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton hailed the decision as a win, but White House officials had no immediate comment. Texas joined a slew of other states in suing the policy and private enterprises and religious organizations. The 5th Circuit has halted OSHA’s unconstitutional and illegal private-business vaccine mandate, citing Texas’ “compelling argument[s].” Biden announced the grant in September, telling Americans that “our patience is wearing thin” with individuals who refuse to be vaccinated.
