“This is an administration that is utterly lawless and, unfortunately, the American people are paying the price,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Monday, as the Biden White House, once again, dismissed a court’s ruling.

“This is, unfortunately, a completely lawless administration. The Fifth Circuit quite rightly stayed Biden's illegal vaccine mandate” – and the White House knows it, but doesn’t care – Sen. Cruz told Fox News Channel Host Laura Ingraham on her Monday evening program.

“This is not the first time they've done this,” Cruz added, citing a federal court’s order regarding the border crisis: “A federal court in Texas ordered the Biden Administration to remain in, and to implement, the Remain in Mexico Agreement. Again, the Biden Administration is just defying that court order.”

Ingraham: “The Fifth Circuit, as you and I know well, blocked Biden's vaccine mandate, but the White House is encouraging businesses to go ahead and implement it. Watch:

White House Spokeswoman: “This is about keeping people in the workplace safe. We're trying to get past this pandemic and we know the way to do that is to get people vaccinated, so people should not wait, they should continue to go, move forward and make sure that they're getting their workplace vaccinated.”

Ingraham: “So senator, are they now just strongly encouraging, versus mandating, to try and get around the court’s stay, injunction?”

Sen. Cruz: “This is, unfortunately, a completely lawless administration. The Fifth Circuit quite rightly stayed Biden's illegal vaccine mandate; they issued an injunction against enforcing it and the White House is saying, ‘Ignore the court injunction.’ Look, the White House lawyers know that the COVID mandate, especially to private employers, it is illegal and it's going to be struck down and what they are counting on is a whole bunch of people will comply, anyway, while the litigation is pending.

“And, by the way, this is not the first time they've done this. On the border, the Biden Administration refuses to enforce the border.

“We have chaos at our southern border, a federal court in Texas ordered the Biden Administration to remain in, and to implement, the Remain in Mexico Agreement. Again, the Biden Administration is just defying that court order. They are slow-walking it and this is an administration that is utterly lawless and, unfortunately, the American people are paying the price.”
