Governor Tim Walz just extended his order for Minnesotans to stay at home or face criminal prosecution. His extension goes all the way until May 4th. Since his original order two weeks ago, several Minnesotans have been fined by police for violating the order. Walz also set up a hotline for citizens to report people disobeying the order.
This order states that "nonessential" workers must stay home. It also closes camping in state parks and forests. Bars, restaurants and non-essential businesses must remain closed.
Walz turns to state statutes to claim emergency powers. But statutes do not supersede the law of the land, our Constitution. More importantly, emergency powers in state statute cannot limit our God given rights protected by the Minnesota Bill of Rights.
Action 4 Liberty opposes this illegal emergency power. One person should not have the power to eradicate the rights of Minnesotans and destruct our economy. We call for Legislature to end Governor Walz Emergency powers!
