On February 23, 2017, President Donald Trump and his administration withdrew federal protection for transgender students instituted by the Obama administration. Trump wants to remove the Trans bathroom federal protection law.
During Obama’s presidency, he tried to bypass Congress and rewrite the Trans Bathroom law. Obama’s administration attempted to go in the direction on the bathrooms being under the Tenth Amendment. The Tenth Amendment is Powers reserved by the states.
Obama’s administration thinks that the ‘’School policy should center on the safety, privacy and dignity of its students, not the whims of federal bureaucrats.” The information was written in a two-page letter to public schools.
Trump’s administration read the letter and said “the Obama-era guidance did not provide ‘ extensive legal analysis of how its position was consistent with Title IX.’’
Due to the letter, Trump is litigating the role of states and local school districts in shaping education policy. As this story aired on the news, a news reporter said Trump’s actual words “As President Trump has clearly stated, he believes policy regarding transgender bathrooms should be decided at the state level.”
The LGBTQ Bathroom issue is a big crisis happening in the world today. The whole LGBTQ Bathroom Law is wrong and cruel. Everybody should have their rights and have the right to go to the bathroom. People who are either supporting or are LGBTQ have rights like everyone else and deserve to be treated equally.
