Michigan Gov. Whitmer extends coronavirus state of emergency declaration another month, takes swipe at GOP | Fox News
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Thursday extended Michigan's state of emergency and disaster declaration through May 28, hours before it was set to expire and after hundreds of protesters, some of whom were armed, gathered in the state Capitol building to voice their displeasure with the Democratic governor.
According to the American Constitutional Rights Union Action Fund, the latest COVID-19 Executive Order issued by Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer seems less about public safety and more about promoting a liberal agenda that raises her name recognition on the national political stage. ACRU Action reviewed Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-42 and found it an ideological checklist that promotes aspects of the Green New Deal, obstructs commerce at “big box” stores while protecting big labor, blocks fishing and hunting, and restricts purchase and use of firearms. By banning family visitation with her edict issued on Good Friday, the Governor took a swipe at family values and religious liberty.
