Sen. Cruz Leads Amicus Briefs To Protect Religious Liberty
As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I was joined by colleagues in both chambers to lead an amicus brief to stand up for the religious liberty of our Navy SEALS given the erosion of their First Amendment rights from vaccine mandates. Additionally, I led 38 of my Senate and House colleagues in challenging President Biden’s illegal vaccine mandate on federal employees.
Forcing employees to choose between their COVID vaccination and their job is wrong. The Biden administration is actively, egregiously undermining our national security and our First Amendment rights through these mandates. My colleagues and I refuse to stand idly by as religious liberty is threatened. I am proud to be on the front lines of the fight to protect the rights guaranteed by our Constitution.
I have continually fought for religious and healthcare freedom. I have:
- Co-led with Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) the amicus brief in the 303 Creative v. Elenis case.
- Sent a letter to military service academies fighting for religious freedom
- Introduced legislation to prohibit the military from dishonorably discharging unvaccinated service members
