Eleven States Sue Obama: Transgender Demands Unconstitutional



Ken Klukowski – May 25, 2016

Eleven states—led by Texas—filed a federal lawsuit today, arguing that the Obama administration’s redefining “sex” to include gender identity—and threatening to sue and strip funding from states and schools that refuse to go along—violates both federal law and the U.S. Constitution.

In public letters, agency documents, and a federal lawsuit filed earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and U.S. Department of Education declare that any school that does not allow boys and girls to use whichever bathroom, locker room, and shower facility they claim to “identify” with thereby violates Title IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and can be stripped of all federal funding.
