The Appellate Division of the Fourth Judicial Department has reversed the outcome of a legal challenge that struck down Gov. Kathy Hochul’s Rule 2.13 “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures” for violating the individual rights of New Yorkers.
The case of Borrello, Lawler, Tague, Uniting NYS v. Hochul appears to now be dead in the water, meaning the state of New York is now free to force anyone into quarantine for any reason at all, including things that have absolutely nothing to do with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
State Sen. George Borrello, Assemblyman Chris Tague, Assemblyman (now Congressman) Michael Lawler, and the citizens’ group Uniting NYS had originally sued Gov. Hochul and won the case, only to later have it struck down in this manner.
What the overturning of this ruling means is that the government of New York is now allowed to legally remove residents from their own homes and haul them off to Camp FEMA for “reeducation.” There is no age restriction on who can be abducted and taken to one of these government-run concentration camps, nor are parents allowed any input into the matter.
“They do not need to warn citizens when they are coming or how long they must quarantine,” reports Armstrong Economics. “You will be required to take any steps the state mandates, including taking medications against your will. There is no due process, no court hearing, and no rule of law as the government may now abduct citizens in the name of public health.”

New Yorkers no longer have control over their own bodies
Commenting on the case’s overturning, Sen. Borrello noted that he is not at all surprised since “this has been a ‘David v. Goliath’ fight from the beginning.” Even so, he and the others will continue to fight against Goliath in this case on behalf of all New Yorkers.
“It is not surprising that the state, with its limitless resources, has effectuated a win this round,” Sen. Borrello said. “We will never stop fighting for New Yorkers against government overreach. And so, we will be appealing this calamitous decision to the Court of Appeals, our state’s highest court, which is a court of constitutional integrity, and we are confident of justice for New Yorkers.”
The state of New York does not even have to require any kind of test result to justify taking away residents to Camp FEMA. As long as the case’s overturning stands, New York now has full authority of the bodies of everyone who lives in New York – though the overturning can still be successfully appealed, which is what the plaintiffs hope to accomplish.
“This is one of the most restrictive and oppressive pieces of legislation to pass in US history and nullifies our freedoms,” Armstrong Economics notes. “There is one last chance to save New Yorkers – the Court of Appeals. If they can do this in New York, they can do it anywhere. We must raise awareness of what is actually going on before it is too late.”
“This is like a real-life version of the movie ‘Escape from New York,'” one commenter joked. “And nobody will do anything.”
“In light of Governor Hochul’s other overreaches into the daily lives of New Yorkers, including her effort to ban gas stoves, her ‘housing’ plan that would eliminate local zoning, and her excessive mask mandates on children, to name a few, our concerns are well-warranted,” the plaintiffs further noted about the fight.
