DON’T MESS WITH TEX: Abbott Sues Biden, Says No Vax for National Guard

Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) is planning to sue the Biden administration if they try to impose vaccine mandates on the Texas National Guard. Abbott calls the mandate “unconstitutional,” and has issued a straightforward order to every member of the Texas National Guard: “Do not punish any guardsman for choosing not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.”

“Unless President Biden federalizes the Texas National Guard in accordance with Title 10 of the U.S. Code, he is not your commander-in-chief under our federal or state Constitutions,” Abbott continues. “And as long as I am your commander-in-chief, I will not tolerate efforts to compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine. Let me be crystal clear: It is the federal government that has put Texas’s guardsmen in this difficult position. As your commander-in-chief, I will fight on your behalf. That is why I am suing the Biden Administration over its latest unconstitutional vaccine mandate.”

Abbott shared news of the lawsuit on Twitter:

“As commander-in-chief of Texas’ militia, I will not tolerate Biden’s efforts to compel Guardsmen to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. That is why I am suing the Biden Admin. over its latest unconstitutional vaccine mandate. Read my full letter:”
