Unmerited meddling from the Obama administration

In support of a biological female student in Virginia, the president's administration is arguing that schools cannot prevent transgender students from using opposite-sex restrooms without violating federal law. But Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) vehemently says that argument is without merit.

"It has absolutely no statutory support. The executive branch cannot constitutionally just enact laws for agencies to enforce when those laws have not been adopted by the Congress," Dacus notes. "The Congress legislatively has to give sufficient breath and authority for such regulations. The fact is such authority simply does not exist."

Dacus, Brad (PJI)Dacus thinks the Gloucester County School Board plight should garner the attention of all Americans.

"This recent effort by the Obama administration to massively infuse these kinds of policies on the people of this country should be a major wake-up call for Americans to no longer be complacent when it comes to tyranny in the executive branch," he submits.

A federal judge recently sided with the school district, and American Civil Liberties Union lawyers for 16-year-old "Gavin" Grimm have appealed to the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.
