San Diego Student Vaccine Mandate Halted by Appeals Court

Joe Biden’s quest to have vaccine mandates in place throughout the country just took yet another blow.

A Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals just put a halt to an order that had been put in place in a San Diego school district.

The mandate would have forced vaccinations on all students 16 and older.

Not So Fast

The suit was brought on behalf of a student-athlete who cited religious beliefs for not wanting to take the vaccine.

Per the mandate, any student who had not been fully vaccinated by December 20 would not be permitted to attend in-person classes.

However, the school would make remote learning accessible to those students.

As a student-athlete, however, remote learning is only half the issue, especially if the student hopes to get a college scholarship for his or her sport of choice.

The lawsuit was filed by the Thomas More Society on behalf of a 16-year-old Scripps Ranch High School student who is only referred to as “Jane Doe” in the filing.

The suit stated that there should also be a religious exemption since there are medical exemptions for pregnancy.

Most of the religious exemptions being filed are due to the use of fetal cell lines used in the development of the vaccines.

Judges Marsha Berzon and Mark Bennett wrote, “The injunction shall be in effect only while a ‘per se’ deferral of vaccination is available to pregnant students under San Diego Unified School District’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate.

“The injunction shall terminate upon removal of the ‘per se’ deferral option for pregnant students.

“I concur in granting Doe’s emergency motion for an injunction pending appeal.

“But I would keep the injunction in effect until the San Diego Unified School District ceases to treat any students (not just pregnant students) seeking relief from the vaccination mandate for secular reasons more favorably than students seeking relief for religious reasons, because any unvaccinated student attending in-person classes poses the same risk to the school district’s interest in ensuring a safe school environment.”

Thomas More Society attorney Paul Jonna added, “SDUSD should promptly revise its policy to include religious exemptions for students.

“Otherwise, we are confident that we will fully vindicate our clients’ rights either in the Ninth Circuit or in the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.

“The COVID regime of secular favorites but religious outcasts must end.

“There is no vaccine exception to the Free Exercise Clause. Until that truth becomes the law of the land, the battle for religious freedom from state-coerced vaccination—while secular exemptees are given a pass—will not be over.”

The outcome of these cases will have a significant impact on Biden’s administration to enforce these mandates on a federal level, especially in our military branches.

Very few religious exemptions have been granted as we stand to lose tens of thousands of military members over the next two months.

If these cases make it to the Supreme Court and the plaintiff’s win, Joe Biden will have yet another legal mess on his hands regarding all troops that were sent packing who had requested a religious exemption.

  1. The President has NEVER been able to legislate anything. He may say that he thinks it would be a good idea if something is done, but to put a penalty on it is something the legislator has to do. Not even the courts can legislate, they can approve or disapprove legislation, but that is as far as they can go.

    1. Half the time Biden doesn’t even know he is the President. We can’t expect him to know the laws that limit his authority, the authority of the Congress and limits placed on the courts. If he ever read and understood the Constitution I’d be surprised.

  2. HOW MUCH MORE OF THIS ADMINISTRATION DOES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE TOO PUT UP WITH BEFORE THE CONGRESS GETS OFF THEIR BUTTS AND IMPEACHMENT IS DONE WITH A MAN THAT MUST FEEL’S THAT THE LAWS AND CONSTITUTION DO NOT APPLY TOO HIM AND THOSE IN THE CONGRESS AND THE CURRENT ADMINISTION. THAT THEY CAN CALL PEOPLE WHO DID NOT VOTE THEIR WAY GET CALLED RACIST AND TERRORIZE OR ANY TIME SOME ONE SPEAK AGAINST THEM GET CALL NAMES, WHEN PEOPLE CALL OTHER NAMES THAT ARE CALLED OFFENSIVE NAMES SHOULD HAVE TO PROVE WHAT THEY CALLED OTHER. THEN THOSE WHO GO AROUND TELLING STORIES THAT THE BORDER POLICE HAVE DONE SOME THING TO THE ALIEN WHO HAVE JUMPED THE BORDER. EVEN WHEN STORY HAVE BEEN DEBUNKED, SOME EVEN MONTH’S LATER.

    1. You are so right. I am sick and tired of all the crap coming out of the Biden Administration. When are the American people and the elected officials going to put a stop to this insanity. Every thing that comes out of the DC swamp is pulling our country down. We have had enough. A revolution isn’t far off.

  3. He has not acted like a American since he took the job. I bet the administration is tied of all the poor decision. They need to just remove him before things get worse. We still have some rights, before there gone DO SOMETHING.

  4. BIDEN WHAT A WASTE OF AIR. THIS SENILE OLD FART SHOULD BE IN A NURSING HOME. WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT OUR REAL PRESIDENT BACK ( MR DONALD TRUMP) GET THAT A HOLE BIDEN OUT OF ANY POWER.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

Jen Psaki: "My advice to everyone out there who's frustrated, sad, angry, pissed off, feel those emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita..."

UNREAL. How is this the "advice" that is now coming from the White House?

Biden claimed “America is back” when he took office.

Instead, he handed the Taliban a safe haven in Afghanistan and gave Putin the “green light” to invade Ukraine.
