The state of Arizona became the first to present a lawsuit to challenge new vaccination orders Mandatory Biden Administration for businesses with 100 or more employees.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich alleges in the legal appeal that President Joe Biden’s term is “unconstitutional.”

Prosecutor argues that Biden privileges undocumented immigrants with new vaccination mandates

Among his arguments, Brnovich argues that the new guidelines are giving preferential treatment to undocumented immigrants at the border.

“There should be no serious or scientific discussion about containing the spread of the virus that does not start at the southern border. Under our Constitution, the president is not a king who can unilaterally exercise this type of unbridled power, “the prosecutor stated in a message on Twitter on September 14.

Brnovich, who is running in the Republican primary for a seat in the federal Senate, believes that Biden illegally treats U.S. citizens and immigrants with regularized status differently than the undocumented who they cross the border without papers. In the latter cases, the authorities offer them the vaccine, but do not force them to submit to the dose, maintains the prosecutor.

In Brnovich’s view, the executive mandate violates the Equal Protection Clause by privileging the undocumented before US citizens.

“The Biden Administration allows immigrants to reject the vaccine, protecting their freedom and bodily autonomy more than US citizens,” said the Prosecutor’s Office.

The complaint asks the Arizona District Court to declare Biden’s vaccination ordinance and regular testing policies unconstitutional and to return decision-making power to citizens.

The Biden Administration defended the new rules on the grounds that the unvaccinated are putting the health of the rest at risk of the population.

“We have been patient, but our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost us all,” Biden said at a news conference last week about the resistance of millions of Americans to wear one of the three vaccines disponibles, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna o Johnson & Johnson.

Biden added that for stop delta variant, much more contagious than the original, it is necessary to strengthen measures to increase vaccination levels against COVID-19.

“Although the United States is in much better shape than it was seven months ago when I assumed the position, I have to give you a second piece of information: we are in a tough stretch and it will last for a while,” added Biden.

Apart from the vaccination mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees, the Administration has required the vaccination for 2.1 million federal government employees, who until now had the option of not getting vaccinated if they were tested for COVID-19 regularly.
