Texas Governor Greg Abbott is fighting against COVID-19 vaccinations and related mandates. He told National Guardsmen in Texas that they could ignore Pentagon vaccination rules. They will not face any punishment for not getting vaccinated for COVID-19.

The Texas governor has threatened to file a federal lawsuit against the White House’s authority to require troops to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

“Unless President Biden federalizes the Texas National Guard in accordance with Title 10 of the U.S. Code, he is not your commander-in-chief under our federal or state Constitutions,” Abbott said in a letter. “And as long as I am your commander-in-chief, I will not tolerate efforts to compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine.”

Six other Republican governors, including Oklahoma, Wyoming, Alaska, Iowa, Mississippi, and Nebraska, have requested to exempt their Guardsmen from coronavirus vaccine mandates.

Guardsmen have obligations to both the governor of the state and the president. During most of their service, troops fall under either State Active Duty or Title 32 orders. This means they are under the command of the governor. However, Guardsmen can be activated under federal Title 10 orders, usually for overseas missions.

“I cannot guarantee that the judiciary will grant the relief you deserve,” Abbott said. “And if President Biden lawfully calls you into the actual service of the United States, then he could order you to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in his newfound role as your commander-in-chief.”
