24 states are now threatening legal action against Joe Biden over his COVID vaccine mandate.
Republican attorneys general (AGs) from 24 states are threatening to take legal action against President Biden’s coronavirus vaccine requirement.
The president announced last week that his administration will require employers with more than 100 workers to mandate coronavirus vaccinations among their employees or conduct weekly COVID-19 tests in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.
“The vaccines have helped protect millions of Americans, and there are surely others who could benefit from obtaining this treatment,” the AGs write in a letter to Biden exclusively reviewed by Fox News Thursday. “But convincing those who are hesitant to do so would require you to allow room for discussion and disagreement.”
“Instead, you have offered the American people flimsy legal arguments, contradictory statements, and threatening directives. It is almost as if your goal is to sow division and distrust, rather than promote unity and the public’s health.”
According to recent polling, only 29.7% of Americans believe that Biden has the constitutional authority to enforce the vaccine mandate.
The first polling data on Biden’s employer vaccine mandate were released on Monday, conducted over the weekend by the Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group, which found that the majority of Americans do not believe Biden has the constitutional authority to force vaccine mandates on the private sector. The majority of Americans want governors to fight back against his forthcoming orders.
Only 29.7% of Americans think Biden has the constitutional authority to mandate employee vaccination, as he detailed last week. Some 58.6% of likely voters say that he does not have the authority to do so.
