President Joe Biden suffered another historic loss to add to his collection as a U.S. judge in Texas issued a nationwide injunction on Friday stopping the federal government from enforcing Biden’s vaccine requirement for federal workers.
Judge Jeffrey Brown, who was appointed to the District Court for the Southern District of Texas President Donald Trump, ruled that opponents of Biden’s mandate for federal employees were likely to win and because what Biden did was ‘a bridge too far’ the judge issued a nationwide injunction.
Brown wrote the issue was whether the president “can, with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress, require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment.”
“That, under the current state of the law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, is a bridge too far,” he added.

From The Daily Mail:
In mid-January, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the president’s COVID-19 vaccination-or-testing mandate for large businesses, a policy conservative justices deemed an improper imposition on the lives and health of many Americans.
The court allowed a separate federal vaccine requirement for healthcare facilities.
A third major vaccine requirement aimed at employees of federal contractors was blocked by a federal judge in December.
In the latest decision, Brown said the government could protect public health with less invasive measures, such as masking and social distancing.
The judge said it was his understanding that the government was going to be begin disciplining non-compliant employees imminently.
The Justice Department said it would appeal the ruling.
The suit was brought by the group Feds for Medical Freedom.
