There Is Some Good News After All In Louisiana

We’re tempted to focus perhaps too much on the ongoing ruin of our state’s major cities, but Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry notes that it’s not all bad around here – there have been a couple of good wins against COVID insanity that his office was able to post this week.

From a press release…

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry celebrated two major wins for Louisiana’s students and teachers. He credited the wins to not only great legal work by his office, but more importantly the public who actively defended medical freedom.

As noted in a press release yesterday morning, the Louisiana Department of Health officially repealed its mandate requiring students get the COVID-19 shot to attend school. In response, Attorney General Landry said: “This is the culmination of hard work by so many concerned parents throughout Louisiana. This is the result of moms, dads, grandparents, and guardians fighting for what is right.

Attorney General Landry also thanked Representative Raymond Crews, Health Freedom Louisiana, the Bayou Mama Bears, Town Hall Baton Rouge, Children’s Health Defense, and all across the State who stood with him for parental choice. “Parents and guardians – not the government – know what’s best for their loved ones; and I hope this victory for them emboldens more participation in the process. When citizens are engaged, get involved, and work together – we win,” added Attorney General Landry.

And as noted in a separate press release yesterday afternoon, a federal judge granted Attorney General Landry’s request to permanently enjoin Joe Biden’s requirements of masks on toddlers and COVID-19 shots for staff and volunteers in the Head Start Programs. The court action was the latest step in a multi-state lawsuit Attorney General Landry led in December 2021 that aimed at blocking the President’s vaccine and mask dictates on these programs serving our neighbors in need.

“As I said when we first filed suit, masking two-year-olds and force vaccinating teachers in our underserved communities would impede child development and cost jobs; fortunately, this attack has been thwarted,” said Attorney General Landry. “I will not waver in this fight to protect not only Louisiana’s poor, single parents, and elderly raising their grandchildren; but also the wonderful teachers, support staff, and volunteers who work tirelessly to provide early childhood education and resources to these families.”
