After North Carolina officials were threatened with a federal lawsuits to accommodate transgender bathroom rights recently, the next step is in the form of letters going to every school in the nation demanding that school officials allow students who identify as transgender to use any bathroom they like, regardless of their birth gender.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R), slammed the Obama administration bathroom rule, according to The Blaze:
“America has woken up to yet another example of President Barack Obama doing through executive fiat what he cannot get done through our democratic process,” said Cruz, a former candidate for the Republican nomination. “Today, he decreed that schools across the country must allow men and boys to use the restrooms, locker rooms, and shower facilities previously reserved for girls. Not only is this decree contrary to law, but it makes no sense.”
Texas state officials weren’t taking too kindly to the orders sent down from on high in Washington, D.C. either.
According to Townhall.com
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a longtime critic of the Obama White House, was one of the first to tell the liberal administration what it can do with their agenda.
“President Obama, in the dark of the night – without consulting Congress, without consulting educators, without consulting parents – decides to issue an executive order, like this superintendent, forcing transgender policies on schools and on parents who clearly don’t want it,” Patrick told NBC 5.
He came to only one conclusion.
“This will be the beginning of the end of the public school system as we know it.”
Texas school officials echoed the Lt. Governor’s fears, according to the Townhall report:
Rodney Canvass, the superintendent of Port Neches-Groves, said the letter from the president is going “straight to the paper shredder.”
