In an unprecedented legal challenge, four Republican plaintiffs have filed a lawsuit in the state of Illinois aiming to disqualify President Joe Biden from appearing on the state’s ballot for the upcoming presidential election.
The lawsuit alleges that the President’s immigration and border policies have given “aid or comfort to enemies,” which is a violation of the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution.

But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Former Congressional Candidate Jack Lombardi II announced this new development through X.

Additional plaintiffs in the case include Shane Bouvet, Tim Conrad, and Pegge Hubbard.
According to the lawsuit:
