Congressman warns vaccine mandate for Navy SEALS could be ‘very detrimental’ to national security
(Worthy News) – Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) blasted the Biden administration on Wednesday for “infringing upon the constitutional rights of Americans” by telling Navy SEALs that if they refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine, they will be prohibited from deploying with their teams.
Hundreds of SEALs, the Navy’s elite special forces operators, are either seeking religious exemptions from the vaccine mandate or are refusing to get the shot since they already have natural immunity to the virus as a result of having had COVID and recovered from it. Some SEALs were given a deadline of this week to receive the vaccine.
R. Davis Younts, an Air Force reserves lieutenant colonel and JAG lawyer who is representing some of these SEALs in his capacity as a private attorney, previously told Just the News that his clients “have been told that if they seek a religious accommodation, they likely will no longer be able to serve our country as Navy SEALs and been given an arbitrary deadline to comply with the vaccine mandate.” [ Source (Read More…) ]
