Anthony Sabatini calls on Ron DeSantis to end ‘cruel’ school mask warrants
representative Anthony sabatini wants mask warrants immediately lifted in Florida school districts.
Calling on the masks for the students to a “cruel and misguided policy”, he pushed the government. Ron DeSantis order all school districts to lift these requirements.
“A student and his or her parents should have a choice of whether or not to wear a mask – not the government,” Republican Howey-in-the-Hills wrote in a letter at DeSantis.
Sabatini, as a lawyer, has represented a number of companies that sued local governments over the past year. He has regularly challenged the constitutionality of lockdowns and mask warrants intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The judges have always ruled against him, with a circuit judge even reprimand Sabatini for bringing frivolous costumes.
“The Court urges Mr. Sabatini to consider the possibility that at some point he could be sanctioned”, wrote the judge. David Frank of the 2nd Circuit Court in a decision upholding a Gadsden County order.
But DeSantis, who has resisted calls to issue a statewide mask warrant, signed an executive order on Monday. lifting any local emergency restrictions related to the pandemic. This included all the mask warrants.
“We’ve worked really hard, especially since the summer, to drop these types of policies, and we’ve focused on uplifting people,” DeSantis said. “We wanted people to go back to work. We wanted our children to be in school. “
But his order did not affect the local school district’s masking requirements.
Three federally approved COVID-19 vaccines are in use in Florida. The Ministry of Health reports 8,959,355 people in the state have received at least one dose, or about 41.6% of the state’s total population.
But only one vaccine, from Pfizer, is approved for children between the ages of 16 and 18, and none are available for younger children. This means that almost the entire student body and all middle and elementary schools remain completely unvaccinated, although school staff and teachers are eligible for the vaccine.
Sabatini thanked DeSantis for ending local orders after 14 months, calling the restrictions “an unparalleled abuse of power and unparalleled suppression of individual freedom never seen before in our great state.”
He probably meant “unparalleled” because masks technically count as clothing.
“As I write this letter, schoolchildren in Florida are still being forced, under threat of punishment, to wear face masks at almost all times,” he wrote. “This cruel government action must stop.”
Today I sent a letter to @GovRonDeSantis demand an executive order suspending the power of school boards to hide children – a cruel and misguided policy. ￼ I applaud the government for yesterday’s decree suspending local city and county orders, but school boards MUST be included as well. pic.twitter.com/e3VLRUqiHx
