Obama Orders Public Schools to Open Restrooms to Transgender Students

ARRA Editor: The below addressed  "order" is one of the "crappiest" (pun intended) decisions by President Obama and his AG, Loretta Lynch.  Permitting anatomically boys in girls bathrooms and anatomically girls in boys bathrooms in schools evidences an extreme decline in morality in the Obama Executive Branch and will place student of the opposite sex at risk physically, emotionally and subject to potential false allegations or charges.

Having acted,  it is clear that both the President and Attorney General are more interested in personal  petty agendas and to the extent that they are willing to interfere in ALL communities across the United States.  Also, their actions go beyond the confines of the Constitution.

Amendment 10 to the U.S. Constitution states: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Education belongs to the states and not the Federal Government. No anatomically male or females are denied access to bathrooms designated for their anatomical gender by any of the states. There is no mention in the Constitution of granting the US Government including the President the right to determine that boys and men must be allowed to use the girls /ladies bathrooms or that girls and women must be allowed to use the boys/mens bathrooms in public schools operated by the States.
by Todd Beamon. Newsmax: The Obama administration on Friday ordered every public school district in the United States to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match the gender identity they have chosen.

"No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus," Education Secretary John King Jr. told The New York Times in a statement late Thursday.

"We must ensure that our young people know that whoever they are or wherever they come from, they have the opportunity to get a great education in an environment free from discrimination, harassment and violence."

"There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement accompanying the directive.

The order, signed by the Education and Justice departments, describes what school districts should do to ensure that no students are discriminated against.

It will not have the force of law, but carries an implicit threat: Schools not abiding by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid,.

The decree comes amid the administration's battle with North Carolina over transgender rights and is most likely to renew attacks by Republicans that the White House is involving itself in state issues.

The Justice Department and North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory sued each other over the transgender bathroom law he signed in March.

The law requires transgender people to use the public restroom matching the sex on their birth certificate. The ordinance only applies to schools, universities, government buildings and highway rest stops.

"We didn't think there was a problem at all until the Democrats brought this up in Charlotte, North Carolina," McCrory, 59, a first-term Republican, told Jake Tapper Wednesday on CNN. "We didn't need a bathroom law. We never have asked for a bathroom law."

President Barack Obama condemned the law last month — and Lynch on Monday said it violated the U.S. Civil Rights Act. . . .  Read Rest of Article

From Congresswoman Diane Black:

Dear Friends,

From executive amnesty, to unilateral gun control, the Obama Administration has never been one to let the Constitutional separation of powers stand in the way from pursuing a liberal agenda, but its latest directive is truly beyond the pale and, ultimately, dangerous.

This morning, officials at the Department of Justice and the Department of Education sent a letter to school districts across the country outlining new steps that schools must take in order to accommodate transgender students. Under this sweeping directive, all it would require is a simple note from a parent or guardian in order for a student to be granted access to the bathroom that corresponds with their gender “identity” rather than the gender indicated on their birth certificate. Worse, the Obama Administration is threatening to withhold federal funding from schools that don’t comply.

We all agree on the right of every student to be treated with dignity and respect, but that right must also exist alongside students’ rights to privacy and safety in their own schools. By forcing students to potentially share a restroom with someone who is biologically of the opposite sex, this directive fails to strike that balance. As a grandmother of young girls, I believe the Obama Administration is now directly responsible for endangering our students.

It is worth noting that this letter does not carry the force of law. In my view, the Obama Administration lacks the authority to carry out this directive and Tennesseans should not feel compelled to comply. I encourage Tennessee school officials to continue following their consciences. Our principals, superintendents, and state administrators know better than President Obama or any Washington bureaucrat what it takes to serve the needs of their specific student population.

Going forward, we have to protect the rights of states like ours to make our own choices when it comes to how to best provide for our students. That is why, later this year when appropriations bills come to the House floor to fund each area of government for the next fiscal year, I plan to introduce an amendment banning the Department of Education from penalizing states that take action to protect students from this dangerous and illogical decree.

We can’t let the Obama Administration bully our schools into conforming to a political agenda. It’s time this President realized that one student’s comfort does not trump another student’s right to personal safety.
