Much to Biden’s dismay the courts are already striking down vaccine mandates.
Recently, David Hurd, a Clinton appointed federal judge blocked New York state’s healthcare worker mandate because it did not allow for religious exemptions.
“The vaccine mandate is suspended in operation to the extent that the (state Department of Health) is barred from enforcing any requirement that employers deny religious exemptions from COVID-19 vaccination or that they revoke any exemptions employers already granted before the vaccine mandate issued,” Hurd wrote in his decision.
A federal appeals court has temporarily blocked New York City from imposing their vaccine mandate on public school workers. A new hearing is scheduled for Wednesday but for now a temporary restraining order has stifled the mandate.
“While we still await a ruling in a separate state court review of the city’s vaccine mandate, the federal court ruling gives the Mayor and city Department of Education more time to put together a real plan for dealing with the expected staff vacancies the mandate would create. We hope they take advantage of this opportunity,” United Federation of Teachers President Michael Mulgrew said.
New York Supreme Court Judge Laurence Love has also issued a restraining order against New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio mandate after multiple city unions sued.
“While we do believe our members should get the vaccine, we do not believe it should be a condition of employment,” District Council 37 Executive Director Henry Garrido said in a statement. “Clearly, the court agrees,” he added.
What boggles the mind is that New York is fully prepared to push through these mandates with the full understanding that they are going to cripple their healthcare infrastructure.
“I am monitoring the staffing situation closely, and we have a plan to increase our health care workforce and help alleviate the burdens on our hospitals and other health care facilities,” said Gov. Kathy Hochul.
Hochul has announced that she’ll declare a state of emergency should hospitals begin to crumble because they fired all their staff as a result of the vaccine mandate.
This is madness, they are so determined to enforce vaccine mandates they are willing to have shortages. The next round of court hearings begin later this week but for now they’ve been stopped.
