(AbsoluteNews.com) – The New York Department of Health released guidelines in December that included instructions for how healthcare providers should distribute coronavirus treatments to patients. Now a former Trump advisor, Stephen Miller, is suing the state for favoring non-white patients and violating the US Constitution.
The document from the health department outlines eligibility rules for COVID-19 oral antiviral treatments, which include having a medical condition or another increased risk factor for severe illness. Underneath that line item, the agency lists “non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity” as one of those risks.
Miller asserts the guidelines violate the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, which talk about equal protection while calling the direction “racist fascism.”
BREAKING: America First Legal sent a notice of potential legal action to NY Health Dept over its tyrannical, unconstitutional covid edicts rationing meds based on race. NY residents & doctors: if you’re concerned about these racist rules please write us at https://t.co/lbf1yscZWP https://t.co/pPNZgiuYxP

The former advisor isn’t the only one questioning the memo. Former US Assistant Attorney Andy McCarthy told Fox News he believes the federal government should investigate.
The Department of Health in New York defended its position by stating no one is “turned away from life-saving treatment,” and the edict is in response to mortality rates reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.)
Meanwhile, Miller is calling on physicians and residents who see the injustice to join the fight by visiting his website.
