The letter, obtained by Newsmax, is written by Rep. Stewart Jones, R-S.C., Rep. Tatum Lee, R-Kansas, and Rep. Josiah Magnuson, R-S.C.
Jones announced that "as State legislators, we took oaths to defend the Constitution of our state and of our country. We are thankful to live in the freest country in the world and we intend to keep it that way."
The lawmakers stated: "We demand that Biden and the federal government leave people alone," stating, "we cannot and will not stand by while Americans are being forced to choose between a jab and a job. No one should be forced to take a COVID vaccine against their will. And no President has the power to require that American citizens undergo a medical procedure of his whim."
The letter says the lawmakers hold Biden's "vaccination mandate as void" and that they "put you on notice that the States are reinserting themselves between the federal government and the People of the United States in order to defend the freedoms and jobs of all Americans."
They announce they will "use every lawful means at our disposal to obstruct, frustrate, and reject your illegal mandate."
Lee stated that "Liberty is at stake. We are living on the cusp of tyranny and we must, as the States united, reign in the power of the federal government by the constitutional authority we have as stated in the 10th Amendment."
"The States give the federal government their power, not the other way around," she continued. "We will not be mocked, nor will we be defeated. The cost to lose is much too great. Today, we stand as the 57th Signer and we pledge our lives, fortunes and honor against every unconstitutional edict. Today we fight."
Biden's OSHA vaccine mandate is currently on hold after being blocked by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. The administration this week urged the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse the ruling and enable the mandate for all workers of companies of 100 or more employees to move forward.
Biden has further mandated all federal employees, including members of the military, be vaccinated.
More signatures are being sought, and as they are obtained, a second letter will be sent, according to a press release sent to Newsmax from Jones and Lee.
