The U.S. Federal Court of Appeals on Saturday suspended the vaccine obligation introduced by Joe Biden for employees of companies with more than 100 individuals, which is time to explore possible “serious constitutional issues.”
According to the US president, millions of employees must be vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine by January 4, otherwise they will have to undergo more routine tests.
Announced in mid-September, it was approved by the administration this week and immediately urgently challenged in court, especially in the state of Texas, where it was restricted by Republicans who oppose any vaccine obligation to fight the epidemic.
So this is a major setback for Joe Biden, who approved his infrastructure investment plan by adopting his first major legislative victory in Congress on Friday.
The Federal Court of Appeals for Texas, in its ruling, ruled that plaintiffs had “argued that there were serious constitutional and procedural issues” with the government speech. The latter is therefore “suspended” on the basis of merit pending the court’s examination.
“We can challenge Biden’s unconstitutional abuse of power in court,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded on Twitter.
