Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Files Lawsuit Against Biden Regime Over New Rule to Protect LGBTQ Mafia

Texas Republican leaders are resisting the Biden regime’s new rules that prevent schools from discriminating against individuals based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

On April 29, 2024, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he would instruct the state’s education agency to ignore the new rules, describing them as a “ham-handed effort to impose a leftist belief.”

Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit to throw a wrench in the policy, contending that the US Department of Education surpassed its authority and wrote an “arbitrary and capricious” rule that broadened Title IX, a 1972 anti-discrimination law originally enacted to safeguard women’s rights.

The department’s rules were announced earlier in April and finalized on April 29. It stated school programs and activities must not discriminate against LGBTQ or pregnant students. Colleges and K-12 schools that don’t abide by this law run the risk of losing their federal funding when the rule goes into effect in August.

The rules butt heads with policies implemented by several Texas school districts, which includes the Dallas-Fort Worth area, that separate school bathrooms and locker rooms by biological sexes. 

In the last few years, Texas has also passed legislation blocking transgender student athletes from competing on teams that correspond with their gender identity, both at the K-12 and collegiate levels.

In a statement, Paxton announced that the Texas state government won’t let Biden “rewrite Title IX at whim, destroying legal protections for women in furtherance of his radical obsession with gender ideology.”

“This attempt to subvert federal law is plainly illegal, undemocratic, and divorced from reality,” Paxton added.

Paxton must be given credit for his efforts to push back against the Biden regime’s excesses. He’s a fighter that is setting a new standard for other Republicans to follow, which is a must in this time of existential political struggles.
