A judge from the US District Court for the Northern District of Texas sided with Stephen Miller’s America First Legal (AFL) against the Biden Regime’s policy of discriminating against white business owners in the COVID relief plan.
The Judge specifically filed a restraining order against the Small Business Administration (SBA) in defense of a Texas Restaurant owner who has not gotten relief from the SBA Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF), despite losing revenue during the pandemic.
The Biden Regime passed the American Rescue Plan Package earlier this year. Much of the financial aid allotted to small businesses within the spending bill prioritized minorities and nonwhites over white business owners. The Judge wrote in his statement that the “Defendants’ [the Biden Administration’s] use of race-based and sex-based preferences in the administration of the RRF violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution.”
Stephen Miller, former Senior Adviser to President Donald Trump, and his America First Legal nonprofit said in a statement that “This ruling is the first, but crucial, step towards ending government-sponsored racial discrimination. We are proud to have obtained this order for our courageous client at this initial stage, but we have a long way to go.” The statement went on to explain the case further: “the government puts some owners at the back of the line for access to a limited pool of money based on their race. So we are presented with a simple but vital question: can the government reward or punish American citizens based upon the color of their skin or the ancestry of their families? We all know the answer.”
The decision is a crushing blow to the Biden Regime, as it tries to move ahead with a radical and anti-white agenda. Biden has capitulated to the radical left on ‘racial justice’ issues, which is why policies such as giving nonwhites preferential treatment went through. This latest ruling by the Northern District is a massive setback to such initiatives, because it sets a precedent for invalidating these policies going forward.
