A federal court has been asked to block the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Four Air Force officers and a Secret Service Agent are among the plaintiffs.

The lawsuit was filed Sept. 23 in United States District Court in Washington. It seeks an injunction to stop vaccination requirements announced for millions of workers in federal executive-branch agencies, including contractors as well as troops.

While officials say people with legitimate religious or medical objections are exempt, the plaintiffs maintain the mandate violates the First Amendment’s protection of religious freedom and are prohibited by law.

The attorneys wrote there is perhaps “no greater usurpation of fundamental constitutional rights than forcibly injecting a foreign substance into an American citizen.

“The rights of our nation’s most heinous convicted serial killers who have been sentenced to death receive more respect than this,” they wrote.
