Program for Low-Income Families in 25 States Sue Biden Over Mask Mandates for Kids

Kid Mask

Twenty-five states are suing the Biden administration over mandatory mask wearing for children over the age of two, as well as vaccine requirements for staff. The lawsuit has been brought by federally funded Head Start Programs which are designed to prepare children up to five years old for school while also providing services and support to low-income families with children.

“Like all of his other unlawful attempts to impose medical decisions on Americans, Biden’s overreaching orders to mask two-year-olds and force vaccinate teachers in our underserved communities will cost jobs and impede child development,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said in a statement Tuesday. “If enacted, Biden’s authoritarianism will cut funding, programs, and childcare that working families, single mothers, and elderly raising grandchildren rely on desperately.”

Joining Louisiana in the effort are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Wyoming and West Virginia.

Fox News reports “The lawsuit comes in response to a set of new rules issued by the Biden administration last month that require children over two years old in Head Start programs to wear masks, while the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is requiring staff, contractors and volunteers in the program to be vaccinated by the end of January.”

The states claim the new rules exceed the administration’s authority and violates the Congressional Review Act and the Tenth Amendment. “Our Nation’s children have faced enough setbacks and difficulties during the last two years; they cannot afford another government attack on their development,” Landry said. “My office has had great success in blocking Biden’s mandates on many hard-working Americans, and we will work tirelessly to achieve the same victories for toddlers and teachers.”

    A MANDATE is NOT an ORDER to comply with.! It is a QUESTION whether you agree to such an Idea.!! Say NO to this Mandate so it can not be signed into law. Where is Allan Dershowitz to point this out to the People.

Governors, lawmakers and AGs team up to stop WHO from seizing more power over U.S. health decisions

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is among several Republican governors, attorneys general and lawmakers, who are working together to create maximum pressure to stop the World Health Organization (WHO) from seizing new powers to impose decisions on the United States and other member countries during future public health crises.

Ken Paxton has gone so far as to even go to court to try to force the Biden administration to not accept the changes being considered by the WHO this week.

“We filed a lawsuit to try to stop it because the Biden administration cannot obligate us to follow health regulations and guidelines by international bodies,” Paxton said on the Thursday edition of the Just the News, No Noise TV show.

“During more than two years of intensive negotiations, WHO’s Member States have shown unwavering commitment to forging a generational agreement to protect the world from a repeat of the horrors caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a press release. “I welcome the determination that all countries have shown to continue their work and fulfill the mission on which they embarked.”

Just The News explains that the global health organization is attempting to prepare for future pandemics by creating a unified policy that would direct countries on how to respond to world-wide emergencies faster than it did for COVID-19.

Specifically, one of the most controversial aspects of the agreement, which will not be a part of the draft agreement, is a “pathogen access and benefits system.” The system would codify sharing material on new viruses or strains that could potentially lead to another pandemic. In sharing the material, the negotiators hope it would ensure that all countries benefit fairly from future vaccines, drugs and tests.

Paxton said that he believes decisions about health should be left up to individual states. “We all believe that the authority to give that control to an international organization……certainly the states have never agreed to this,” he said. “And certainly we don’t believe the federal government has the power to impose that on us.”

Republican governors from two dozen states also sent a letter to Biden opposing these proposed changes, arguing they could “undermine national sovereignty.”

Twenty-two GOP attorneys general also criticized the changes, stating that if they were to go through, “the WHO would transform from an advisory, charitable organization to the world’s governor of public health.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic exposed fundamental flaws with the WHO and other public health institutions,” the letter reads. “These entities breached public trust and are unquestionably in need of reform. The proposed measures, however, would only exacerbate the WHO’s underlying problems and enable more civil liberties violations during future ’emergencies.'”
