There’s been talk of a possible nationwide lockdown of 4 to 6 weeks once President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January, although he has backed off that stance lately, saying it would be a “measure of last resort.”

Attorney General Steve Marshall, who previously served as Marshall County District Attorney, says he would challenge the legality of such a lockdown were it to be ordered.

He issued this statement:

“I would immediately challenge any effort by Joe Biden, if he were to become our next president, to institute a nationwide lockdown. I know that liberal politicians have no use for, or understanding of, the Constitution—and certainly not its Tenth Amendment—but the courts certainly do.”
