(PresidentialInsider.com)- According to a motion filed this week in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, the United States Navy is currently violating a federal court order that blocks Navy SEALs from being denied Religious Accommodation Requests from the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
The motion, filed by attorneys from First Liberty Institute, requested a hearing to seek answers from the Department of Defense and the Navy about Navy SEALs being denied religious exceptions to the Pentagon’s vaccine mandate. The attorneys argue that the DoD and the navy should be held in contempt of court.
According to the motion, one of the defendants in the case – a Navy SEAL – has been denied permission to travel to a treatment program for traumatic brain injuries, which constitutes an “egregious example” of harm suffered by the plaintiffs.
“Continuing to ignore this SEAL’s medical needs, even in the face of the Court’s explicit recognition of the harm to this SEAL in the preliminary-injunction order, is simply inexcusable,” the motion reads.
The SEAL in question reportedly offered to pay for his own travel to receive the treatment but was denied the opportunity to go after he confirmed that he had not received the COVID0-19 vaccine.
Another plaintiff in the case was also allegedly forced to stay in a training location for four months – rather than the originally planned four weeks – and has been told that he must have special permission from the Commanding Officer to leave the base, no matter the reason. It means that he can’t leave the training base to get groceries or buy gas, simply because he has not taken the COVID-19 shot.
Several other SEALs are also reportedly being blocked from accessing training or being deployed because they haven’t complied with the Pentagon vaccine mandate – even though the court already ruled in January that the Navy from punishing and harassing soldiers for refusing to take the shot.
The federal court ruling from January ruled that denying religious exemptions to the vaccine mandate was unconstitutional.
The Biden administration isn’t just punishing patriotic military personnel…it’s illegally punishing them.
