De Blasio’s order mandates any citizen seeking to engage in most venues of indoor commerce to prove they have received their jab, whether by the paper card standardized by the CDC, or by New York State’s “Excelsior” pass app championed by outgoing Gov. 앤드류 쿠 오모.
Pool told “폭스 뉴스 프라임 타임” that he reached out to the city-run “311” hotline, a collect-all for questions about city policies or for residents to report various quality of life concerns, and asked the operator about how to get an exemption for an immunocompromised producer who works for his podcast.
“Immediately they said no. And before I even finished my question I said are there any medical exemptions? — 아니. — 진지하게?” he recalled to host 윌 케인.
“잘, somebody has, say epilepsy or M.S./multiple sclerosis, they are not able to get the 백신 — the woman said no.”
Pool explained that his producer suffers from multiple sclerosis (MS), and therefore is wary of receiving vaccines that could worsen the condition.
“So I [물었다 311 operator whether] my friend who has M.S. and cannot get the vaccine will not be welcome indoors in New York City — She said no, 경. – She will not and this is correct.”
Pool then called around to as many as 25 New York City restaurants, which are among the series of businesses including theater which de Blasio has said will face penalties for violations of the order, and was stunned by one restaurateur’s reply:
“The mandates from the mayor means employment as well. That means by September 13th, all businesses in New York City must fire every single immunocompromised epilepsy sufferers people are a history of anaphylaxis, M.S., it’s absolutely insane,” 그는 말했다.
“I asked them would you bar my friend if I came and she has M.S. And can’t get the vaccine? They all said yes, 죄송 해요. I’m just following the orders of the mayor.”
Cain replied that “I’m just following orders” 이다 “scary refrain” to be heard in the United States:
“We have heard that before,” 그는 회상했다.
Pool later added that viewers should try to imagine a mayor of a major city issuing an edict mandating racial segregation that supersedes federal law in the way the vaccine mandate may violate the terms of the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1992.
“Imagine a mayor issuing a mandate allowing racial segregation; trying to supersede U.S. federal law… that’s akin to what we’re seeing,” 그는 덧붙였다.
Pool underlined that he is not an attorney, but believes strongly that through his conversation with the city’s 311 hotline and the replies from restaurant owners show that there is a strong probability de Blasio is violating both the ADA and the New York State Human Rights Law.
