According to legal expert Alan Dershowitz, President Joe Biden does not have authority when it comes to the vaccine mandates, but rather the power lies with Congress.
"Only Congress can make vaccine mandates, not the president," Dershowitz told Newsmax on Saturday. "After all, the Constitution says, quote, 'all legislative powers shall be vested in Congress,' and then it says 'they can make all laws that may be necessary.'"
"The Constitution does not give the president the power to make laws and this mandate either makes law or it interprets the OSHA law very, very broadly," he continued. "I predicted in my book that the mandate would be upheld if it were enacted by Congress properly, with exceptions, but it might very well not be upheld if it was simply issued by the president."
Dershowitz told host Tom Basile. "The executive authority, the president, has the right to enforce the law, not make the law."
"The Constitution anticipated there would be errors and they said, if there going to be errors, Congress has to evaluate the conflicting data," he explained. "Congress, the voice of the people, votes as to which side prevails in a dispute, but the Constitution doesn't give the president the power to make that decision."
"In terms of emergencies, some of the worst decisions in our history were made based on the claim of emergency," Dershowitz said. "We've had COVID now for two years. Congress has had an opportunity to act on emergencies constitutionally, or when there is no opportunity for Congress to act," he continued.
"So the emergency argument goes much too far and has been used much too often to justify executive actions that should rightfully be made by Congress," he concluded.
