Paxton ramps up fight against transgender policy

Plunging further into the politics of public school bathrooms, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Wednesday expanded his federal lawsuit against an Obama Administration directive instructing schools not to discriminate against transgender students, saying he wants a nationwide injunction stopping the policy and wants it quickly.

Because a federal judge’s decision to halt President Obama’s executive action on immigration was applied nationwide, Paxton suggested that a different federal judge in Wichita Falls has the authority to issue a similar order regarding the transgender policy.

The updated request for preliminary injunction against the new rules is the latest in Texas’ fight against the federal government over the transgender-inclusive policy. Zeroing in on a requirement to allow transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity, Texas, joined by 10 other states, filed a federal lawsuit in March to stop Obama’s directive.

Guidelines issued by the Fort Worth School District in April prompted Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick to call for Superintendent Kent Scribner’s resignation. He has since called on all superintendents in Texas to ignore the Obama directive.

    Barack Obama doesn’t have the constitutional authority to dictate anything about school bathrooms. President Obama has consistently ignored and undermined the Constitution during his time in office. Hopefully a sane judge will bring this ill-conceived Obama directive to a close.

    Even if Texas does eventually secede from the US, they’ll still be more truly American than most of the remaining 49 states (or 56 if President Puke is counting).
