When President Obama's Department of Education sent a letter to every public school in the country demanding they recognize transgender bathroom rights, 13 states immediately moved to sue the administration. On Friday, 10 more states added their voices, refusing to blindly accept his social justice agenda.
State of Nebraska v. United States of America also included Arkansas, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Wyoming.
In a news release, Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson argued the White House's bathroom mandate "supersedes local school districts' authority to address student issues on an individualized, professional and private basis."
Alliance Defending Freedom offered a statement fully supporting Nebraska's lead.
"Twenty-three states have now filed suit to stop this overreach, designed to force students to shower and undress in the same locker rooms and to share rooms on overnight trips with students of the opposite sex—something they shouldn’t ever be forced to do," ADF said. "The administration has exceeded its authority in threatening schools that choose to protect children’s privacy."
A new poll released by the Family Research Council shows that two-thirds of Americans disapprove of the White House's bathroom decree. FRC President Tony Perkins notes it is indicative of the country being fed up with the White House's dangerous social warrior agenda.
"After nearly eight years of federal overreach, we are seeing the American people stand up to Barack Obama's effort to fundamentally transform America."
