Texas Sues Obama For Infringing Upon The Constitution

Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is in the process of suing President Obama for destroying the United states Constitution.

Along with attempting to stop a ‘federal directive’ that instructs school districts to allow transgender students utilize a bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity.

Governor Abbott, a Republican, announcement this on twitter.




Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is envisioned to discuss the lawsuit in a news conference today in the afternoon.

The McKinney Republican has sought legal clarification on issue.




Earlier this month he met with lawyers from Oklahoma and West Virginia to write a letter to the United States Justice and Education departments.

Asking whether or not states will lose federal funding if their school districts didn’t comply.

The Directive stated transgender students have the right to utilize their recommended bathrooms in public schools because of Title IX.

Title IX is a Federal Statute that forbids discrimination on the foundation of gender at education institutions that acquire federal funding.

During a stop at the city Rock stop Wednesday morning right after he tweeted the news, Governor Abbott said Paxton’s lawsuit is “challenging the way that the Obama administration is trampling the United States Constitution.” “The president has no authority to enact laws whatsoever. Several times Congress has taken up the issue of whether to expand the Civil Rights Act and Title IX and whether or not to include transgender. Both times or multiple times, Congress has decided against that.”

When asked whether or not he had any feedback on the attorney general’s decision to challenge the directive, Gov. Abbott said that the lawsuit was Paxton’s “determination.”

He also defended the expense of suing the federal government about the issue.




Gov. Abbott also included, “There is no price that can be put on a president violating the Constitution,” he said. “This country abandons its fundamental principle when we have a president who says he is above the law. Barack Obama has repeatedly said he is above the law. Texas is going to put a stop to that.”

The battle about the concern burst into national view two months ago in March.

It happened right after the North Carolina General Assembly approved House Bill 2, which prohibited transgender people from utilizing bathrooms that don’t coordinate with the gender on their birth certificate.

The controversial law, that has caused some businesses to reevaluate their investments in the state, is at this point the subject of a federal civil rights lawsuit.




In Texas, ‘the Obama administration directive’ has developed a wide-spread outrage between Republicans, encouraging full-throat assaults from many party leaders such as Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick and United States Senator Ted Cruz.

Patrick produced headlines earlier this month at the time he asked for the resignation of a Fort Worth Superintendent about his district’s policies for transgender students.

To conclude, Lt. Gov. Patrick has urged with the Texas superintendents to withstand pressure from the federal government to comply with the Obama administration guidelines.

I respect Gov. Abbott for taking a stand when nobody else will. Obama is not our God, nor does he have the right to change the United states Constitution.

What are today’s Americans afraid of. Why are they afraid of Obama?
