MA AG: Students Should Use Bathroom of Preference
2/25/2017

By Alex Bregman

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is pushing back against President Trump's decision to roll back guidance put in place by the Obama administration that said schools have to let students use the bathroom corresponding to their preferred gender identity. The directive, at the time, was in response to so-called bathroom bills passed by states and local school districts that had prevented transgender students from using the bathroom that corresponds to their sexual identity rather than their assigned sex at birth. White House press secretary Sean Spicer has said, "The president has maintained for a long time that this is a states' rights issue and not one for the federal government."

Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga spoke to Healey about her state's reaction to the Trump administration on transgender protections. Healey's response to the states' rights argument on transgender rights in schools: "They can claim it's not a federal law issue, but it is, and in fact, Title IX, which is a federal statute, we believe is correctly interpreted and was correctly interpreted by the Obama administration to include protection against discrimination based on gender identities."

She continued, "I'm glad that I'm in a state where there are protections for transgender students in education, but my heart breaks, Bianna, for the many, many kids and families across this country who saw the first act of a United States attorney general to be a cruel one to actually take away rights and protections and to say to them, 'You're not worthy of equal treatment. You're not worthy of dignity and respect like all other students and young people out there.' I think that's just wrong."

Healey also told Golodryga, "I think that Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions ought to start picking on someone their own size and not like they did yesterday, which was to pick on and target already vulnerable children."

Healey was also among the state attorneys general that had sued the White House over the recent immigration travel ban that has been put on hold by a federal court. The administration has said it will be replacing it with a new order in the future. When Healey was asked whether she plans to challenge that pending order, she told Golodryga: "We will have to wait and see what that executive order is, but the first one presented all sorts of not just unconstitutional concerns but also, think about the chaos that he created. As a member of law enforcement ... who is in Boston, Mass., and very concerned about issues of security, I will tell you that what he did was counterproductive and harmful to security."

Finally, when asked about President Trump's inner circle, Healey took particular aim at White House senior adviser Stephen Miller. She said, "There are people there around him that have absolutely no business being anywhere near the Oval Office. Somebody like a Stephen Miller just has no business being in the White House, let alone offering advice to the president of the United States. He doesn't know what he's talking about. He doesn't know what he's doing."

As for President Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, Healey said: "I think that Steve Bannon ... his record, his actions speak for themselves. I think it is deeply unfortunate that the president has not sought the advice and the counsel of a broader array of individuals with actual experience and knowledge and know-how. I think, frankly, that's why you see such a chaotic and dysfunctional administration."

COMMENT: It is amazing to me to see how the liberals in this country continue to insist in sinning.  Who would've imagined this blessed nation would have come to this?  The warning to such people is given in Isaiah 3:9, "...they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not.  Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves."  The liberal's reaction to Scripture?  Not only unbelief, but they mock God.  Sorry.  The Bible is clear.  Galatians 6:7, "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."  Keep that in mind, liberals.

La Fiscal General Maura Healey de Massachusetts está presionando contra la decisión del Presidente Trump de revertir la guía puesta en marcha por la administración Obama que dijo que las escuelas tienen que dejar que los estudiantes usen el baño correspondiente a su identidad de género preferida.
La directiva, en ese momento, era en respuesta a las llamadas facturas de baño aprobadas por los estados y distritos escolares locales que habían impedido a los estudiantes transgéneros usar el baño que corresponde a su identidad sexual en lugar de su sexo asignado al nacer. El secretario de prensa de la Casa Blanca, Sean Spicer, ha dicho: "El presidente ha mantenido durante mucho tiempo que este es un tema de derechos de los estados y no uno para el gobierno federal". La periodista y analista de Bianna Golodryga habló con Healey sobre la reacción de su estado a La administración Trump en las protecciones de los transgéneros. La respuesta de Healey al argumento de los derechos de los estados sobre los derechos de los transexuales en las escuelas: "Pueden afirmar que no es una cuestión de ley federal, pero es, y de hecho, Título IX, que es una ley federal, creemos que se interpreta correctamente y fue correcta Interpretado por el gobierno de Obama para incluir la protección contra la discriminación basada en identidades de género. "Ella continuó," Me alegro de que estoy en un estado donde hay protecciones para los estudiantes transgéneros en la educación, pero mi corazón se rompe, Bianna, por la Muchos niños y familias de todo el país que vieron el primer acto de un fiscal general de los Estados Unidos ser cruel para quitarles los derechos y las protecciones y decirles: "Ustedes no son dignos de igualdad de trato. No son dignos de dignidad y respeto como todos los demás estudiantes y jóvenes que hay por ahí. Healey también le dijo a Golodryga: "Creo que Donald Trump y Jeff Sessions deberían empezar a recoger a alguien de su propio tamaño y no como lo hicieron ayer, lo que era recoger y atacar a los niños ya vulnerables". Healey También estuvo entre los fiscales generales del estado que habían demandado a la Casa Blanca por la reciente prohibición de viajar por inmigración que ha sido suspendida por un tribunal federal. La administración ha dicho que lo reemplazará con un nuevo orden en el futuro. Cuando se le preguntó a Healey si planeaba impugnar ese orden pendiente, le dijo a Golodryga: "Tendremos que esperar y ver qué es esa orden ejecutiva, pero la primera presentó todo tipo de preocupaciones no sólo inconstitucionales, sino también, pensar en el caos Como miembro de la policía ... que está en Boston, Massachusetts, y muy preocupado por los temas de seguridad, les diré que lo que hizo fue contraproducente y perjudicial para la seguridad ". El círculo íntimo del Presidente Trump, Healey tuvo un objetivo particular en el consejero mayor de la Casa Blanca, Stephen Miller. Dijo: "Hay gente alrededor de él que no tiene absolutamente nada que ver con la Oficina Oval. Alguien como un Stephen Miller no tiene nada que hacer en la Casa Blanca, y mucho menos ofrecer consejo al presidente de los Estados Unidos. No sabe de qué está hablando, no sabe lo que está haciendo ".En cuanto al estratega jefe del presidente Trump, Steve Bannon, Healey dijo:" Creo que Steve Bannon ... su récord, sus acciones hablan por sí mismos. Creo que es profundamente lamentable que el presidente no haya buscado el consejo y el consejo de una gama más amplia de personas con experiencia y conocimientos y conocimientos técnicos reales, creo que, francamente, es por eso que ve una administración tan caótica y disfuncional ".

COMENTARIO: Es increíble para mí ver cómo los liberales en este país siguen insistiendo en pecar. ¿Quién habría imaginado que esta bendita nación habría llegado a esto? La advertencia a estas personas se da en Isaías 3: 9, "... declaran su pecado como Sodoma, no lo ocultan, ¡ay de su alma, porque han recompensado mal a sí mismos". ¿La reacción liberal a la Escritura? No sólo la incredulidad, sino que se burlan de Dios. Lo siento. La Biblia es clara. Gálatas 6:7, "No se engañe, no se burle de Dios, porque todo lo que el hombre sembrare, eso también segará". Mantén eso en mente, liberal.
