Friday, Texas AG Ken Paxton announced “Yes, I just filed my 18th lawsuit against the Biden Administration.”
He was responding to Edward Lawrence who wrote “TX Attorney General Ken Paxton just told me a lawsuit against the Biden Administration over the vaccine mandate for Federal Workers is being filed today by 20 State Attorneys General. He says they are also seeking a temporary injunction”
The lawsuit says the Biden admin is “using subterfuge to accomplish what they cannot achieve directly—universal compliance with their vaccine mandates, regardless of individual preferences, healthcare needs, or religious beliefs.”
“Defendants effectively claim for themselves a general police power to control American life, infringing on states’ sovereignty and usurping the powers reserved to the states under the Constitution,” the suit adds.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp have taken similar legal action against vaccine mandates.
