At the direction of President Joe Biden and in defiance of a recent Supreme Court ruling, the Centers for Disease Control issued an illegal 60-day eviction moratorium Tuesday evening.

“The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is issuing a new over temporarily halting evictions in counties with heightened levels of community transmission in order to respond to recent, unexpected developments in the trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the rise of the Delta variant. It is intended to target specific areas of the country where cases are rapidly increasing, which likely would be exacerbated by mass evictions,” the CDC released in a statement. “Accordingly, subject to the imitations under ‘Applicability,’ a landlord, owner of a residential property, or other person with a legal right to pursue eviction or possessory action, shall not evict any covered person from experiencing substantial or high levels of community transmission of SARS-CoV-2.”

The penalties are stiff, although it is unclear where the CDC got the authority to enforce a “law” Congress did not pass.

Congress, which is controlled by Democrats, had two months to come up with a solution after the Supreme Court determined the moratorium — issued through the executive branch — is unconstitutional.

And Biden also admitted his plan is to tie it up in the courts so that it gets funded in the interim:

“The President expressly acknowledged that they would seek a likely unconstitutional program hoping to get money out the door before the court killed the program”:
