Rep. Green Demands President Biden Rescind Vaccine Mandate Executive Orders

WASHINGTON—Rep. Mark Green sent a letter to President Joe Biden expressing his concern over unequal and unjust enforcement of Executive Orders 14043, “Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees,” and 14042, “Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors” and urged their rescission. 

While some federal employees and contractors are still being required to comply with the mandated requirements, numerous injunctions against these orders have resulted in inconsistency across which federal employees and contractors are subject to comply with these measures and which ones are exempt.

An excerpt from the letter reads, “Simply put, if there are employees in some parts of the country still working without being vaccinated, how can you claim that nationwide mandates are necessary under an emergency process? The unequal application of justice and blatant inconsistencies of these orders are in stark contrast to both the letter and the spirit of U.S. law.” 

Rep. Green said, I’m disappointed in the disregard for U.S. law that these executive orders display. The application of these executive orders flagrantly ignore multiple federal courts that have blocked them. These orders must be rescinded.”
