  'Trust God to be our healer:’ As COVID-19 vaccine mandates grow, so are requests for religious exemptions Experts worry religious exemptions could undercut COVID-19 mandates, even though most major religions don’t object to vaccines.

I am one of the people that respect the tenets of religion,” Fauci told USA TODAY's Editorial Board. “But if people make it up, and it's really a philosophical reason and they’re saying it's religious, that's not good.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration on Tuesday in response to its new policy that will require private employers with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccines or weekly testing.

"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," Brnovich, who is currently waging a bid for the U.S. Senate, said in a statement.

The new policy, which Biden unveiled last week, will be issued by the Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration "in the coing weeks."

I issued an Executive Order protecting Texans’ right to choose whether they get the COVID vaccine & added it to the special session agenda. Texas is already working to halt this power grab,” Texas Gov.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has raised concerns over the Biden administration's plan to send agents to the homes of unvaccinated Americans to promote Covid-19 jabs, saying such a program could violate privacy rights. The door-to-door campaign, which was announced on Brnovich's concern focused on the implication that the administration has gathered information on the vaccination status of individual Americans and will use that data to target those who haven't gotten Covid-19 shots. Biden , who missed his goal of having 70% of adults inoculated with at least their first vaccine dose by July 4

It could impact nearly 80 million workers.

Brnovich's office is arguing that the policy is in violation of the Equal Protection Clause because by "favoring migrants" who entered the U.S. at the southern border, rather than U.S. citizens. It said that by allowing migrants to decline getting inoculated, the administration is "protecting their freedom and bodily autonomy more than American citizens."

His office said the policy represents an "unmistakable - and unconstitutional - brand of favoritism in favor of illegal migrants."

"However, migrants who cross the southern border illegally are not subject to any vaccination requirements even when released directly into the United States (where most will remain)," his office said in a statement.

Nearly six in ten (58.6%) Americans polled over the weekend believe The White House plans to roll out the vaccination mandate announced last week through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a subsidiary agency of the Department of Labor. Under the proposed rule, any business with 100 or more employees must require its workers to be vaccinated or receive

The attorney general ’s office (AGO) threatened to direct the Arizona state treasurer to block Tucson from receiving the city’s portion of state shared revenues unless it retracted the mandate . “Additionally, the AGO believes the City of Tucson could subject itself to potential liability claim,” Brnovich’s statement warned. The AGO gave Tucson 30 days to reverse course or losing funding, which could amount to up to 5 million. In response, city officials said Wednesday that they will pause the vaccine mandate for the time being. “Until we have a better understanding of our legal position in relation to today’s report

"There can be no serious or scientific discussion about containing the spread of COVID-19 that doesn't begin at our southern border," Brnovich added in a statement.

The attorney general's office said the policy is "one of the greatest infringements upon individual liberties, principles of federalism, and separation of powers ever attempted by an American President."

"Under our Constitution, the President is not a king who can exercise this sort of unbridled power unilaterally. And even George III wouldn't have dreamed that he could enact such sweeping policies by royal decree alone," the office said in a statement.

The attorney general told reporters during a call that there is "uncertainty, a confusion, as to what the president can or can't do," adding that he would work to shield the Constitution from "federal overreach," according to CNN.

The suit is the first lawsuit filed against the Biden administration in response to its federal vaccine mandate.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has announced plans to sue the Biden regime for unconstitutionally mandating that all federal, contract and large private corporation employees get " vaccinated " for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) in order to keep their jobs. “I wouldn’t demand it be mandatory .” Perhaps Ol’ Joe just forgot what he said.

The legal showdowns over vaccine mandates could also provide high-profile platforms for Republicans running statewide, or aiming even higher, in places where the mandates are unpopular.
