FIVE FREEDOMS: [MAJOR WIN] NY judge grants injunction against COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health care workers
NEW YORK (WABC) — A federal judge in Utica sided Tuesday with 17 health care workers who object to New York State’s vaccine mandate for health workers on religious grounds, granting their request for an injunction that stops the state from enforcing the policy for those who claim a religion-based objection.
“There is no adequate explanation from defendants about why the ‘reasonable accommodation’ that must be extended to a medically exempt health care worker under 2.61 could not similarly be extended to a healthcare worker with a sincere religious objection,” Judge David Hurd wrote.
Hurd’s preliminary injunction means New York will continue to be barred from enforcing any requirement that employers deny religious exemptions.

American Patriot Party (.CC) National Headquarters is opposed to mandates because as written in the Virginia Ratifying Convention of 6-16-1788 (which defines the meaning of the words in the Constitution) the federal government was not given this power. This because the federal legislature, supreme court, the executive, the judicial or states in their limited ability as well as prohibiting the states through the legislature from granting the federal government (arrogating) powers outside the original delegated powers by “ANY MEANS” (which includes the amendment and ratifying process): “They (the federal government) can make NO REGULATION THAT MAY AFFECT THE CITIZENS OF THE UNION AT LARGE” …NOR ARROGATE ANY NEW POWER” …”OR TAKE ONE STEP OUTSIDE THE DELEGATED POWERS….” Read it in full at American Patriot Party .CC in the suggested reading section. What we do not like about this bill is that it ignores the above Constitutional LIMIT mentioned, removes the WIDE Constitutional and Natural Law principle of CONSENT and places the LIMITED reason of religion only as a means to avoid a unconstitutional mandate. Think about it. RE-Write it with these principles that limit federal government. Richard Taylor APP Chair
