A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction ruling that Joe Biden cannot simply install race discrimination as a federal policy.
The announcement comes from the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, which obtained the injunction on behalf of several clients who are challenging Biden’s “racially discriminatory Minority Business Development Agency” programming.
That ideology actually is a cornerstone of Biden’s so-called “racial equity agenda,” WILL reported.
Biden signed, in 2021, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and in that was the provision to create the newest federal agency, the MBDA, which is “dedicated entirely to providing benefits and programming only to certain businesses based on race or ethnicity,” WILL documented.
“The federal court declared what we know is the law and the right thing: the government may not discriminate based on race. Without equality, our other rights mean little if anything at all. WILL is committed to preserving that fundamental principle and our fight is far from over,” explained WILL President Rick Esenberg.
And associate counsel Cara Tolliver added, “It is repugnant to human dignity to presume a diminished ability or inability to succeed, or to grant or deny a benefit, on the basis of race. The Biden Administration’s MBDA offers no constitutional justification for its broad race-based program. WILL will continue to vindicate basic notions of human dignity embraced in the doctrine of equality.”
The opinion came from a federal court in Texas, which said, “[t]he Constitution demands equal treatment under the law” and that a program that employs race-conscious measures for eligibility must meet strict standards for justification to survive constitutional scrutiny.
The MBDA worked on the presumption that the government was justified in giving preferential treatment based on race.
The case was brought on behalf of Jeffrey Nuziard and others.
U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman explained under his order the Wisconsin MDBA Business Center and others were not allowed to impose “the racial and ethnic classifications … against the plaintiffs.”
He noted the plaintiffs allege the defendants “infringed their rights under the Fifth Amendment” and those violations are “irreparable injuries.”
Further, he noted the government never said it even considered or tried “race neutral” plans that might reach the same goal. But a “review” the government offered in support of its racist program even emphasized “the need for both race-neutral and race-conscious remedial efforts,” the judge found.

The judge explained, “In sum, Nuziard has suffered an injury-in-fact because he is able and ready to apply for the center’s benefits in the absence of the race-and ethnicity requirement. That injury is fairly traceable to defendants because they impose that requirement on the center. And an injunction preventing the center from enforcing that requirement would redress Nuziard’s injury.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.
In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.
How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
