President Trump Reverses Unlawful Obama Administration Bathroom Policy

 


Dear Marriage Supporter,

Late yesterday, the Trump administration acted to reverse the dangerous transgender school bathroom policies put forth under President Obama. This is a huge victory for common sense and for protecting our wives and daughters from predatory activity in intimate spaces like locker rooms and restrooms.

Ryan Anderson explains at The Daily Signal:

Civil rights officers in the Department of Justice and the Department of Education issued a joint letter saying the administration was rescinding the policy, which had required schools to allow students who identify as transgender to use the restrooms, locker rooms and similar facilities of their choice—or face loss of federal funds.

In the letter, they said the Obama mandate did not show “due regard for the primary role of the states and local school districts” in making education policy.

The Trump administration is doing the right thing in correcting Obama’s unlawful overreach, which imposed a one-sided solution on all 50 states. Parents and teachers in local schools now can work to find win-win solutions that protect the dignity, privacy, and safety of all students.
