ALGOP Encourages Lawmakers to Take Action Against Biden Vaccine Mandates

Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl announced the party is strongly recommending state legislation opposing Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates on the basis of discrimination, and the clear violation of citizens’ constitutional right to privacy.

Statement from Chairman John Wahl

“Vaccine mandates are fundamentally flawed.  No entity has the right to spy on a citizen’s personal health information, and requiring someone to disclose their vaccine status or be fired is the very definition of discrimination. Individuals and families should have the freedom to make their own medical decisions without fear of a government mandate.

“The Biden Administration is out of control, and needs to be challenged on these unconstitutional and un-American mandates. I want to see Alabama leading the charge to defend the rights and freedoms of our citizens. We need to protect both the people of Alabama and the businesses of Alabama from this forced Government discrimination. The Alabama Republican Party fully supports legislation opposing vaccine mandates in the upcoming special session.

“The people of Alabama need to know that our state government is fighting for them, and that there is hope for those facing losing their livelihoods and their ability to provide for their families. I am proud of the State Legislature and Governor Kay Ivey for passing SB267 this spring. I hope they will continue defending the people of Alabama as we move forward.”

If allowed to go into effect, tens of thousands of Alabamians will face the prospect of losing their jobs under President Biden’s latest forced mandates. Federal government employees are not the only ones impacted by this edict. These mandates target anyone employed by a private sector company doing business with the government, as well as any business with more than 100 employees.

Numerous companies have already started firing employees for being unvaccinated, including United Airlines, Cumulus Media and CNN.
