23 States Sue Biden Administration for Threats to Withhold Nutrition Assistance at Schools That Do Not Adhere to ‘Gender Identity’ Policy

Attorneys General in 23 states joined together to file a suit against the Biden Administration’s new guidance on sex discrimination for schools and programs that receive federal nutritional assistance.

🔹The lawsuit names the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a defendant and was filed in the Eastern District of Tennessee.  

🔹On May 5, 2022, the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Services issued legally suspect guidance to states announcing that discrimination on the basis of sex in Title IX and the Food and Nutrition Act includes discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

🔹One example is that this put Texas’s Title IX and SNAP school lunch funding at risk.  

In the lawsuit, the attorneys general argue the USDA’s Guidance is unlawful because it: 

  • was issued without providing the State and other stakeholders the opportunity for input as required by the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 
  •  was premised on a misreading and misapplication of the Supreme Court’s holding in Bostock v. Clayton County, and 
  • imposes new and unlawful regulatory measures on state agencies and operators receiving federal financial assistance from the USDA, which will inevitably result in regulatory chaos that threatens essential nutritional services to some of the most vulnerable citizens.  

The National School Lunch Program services nearly 30 million school children each day, many who rely on it for breakfast, lunch, or both.

On June 14, 2022, a coalition of 26 state attorneys general called on President Biden to withdraw USDA’s guidance that interpreted the statutory definition of “sex” in Title IX to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

17 Attorneys General Send Letter to Google Urging Fair Access to Crisis Pregnancy Centers

In response to Democratic politicians recently asking Google to limit the appearance of pro-life clinics in Google search results, a Virginia-led multistate letter was sent to the CEO of Alphabet Inc.—the multinational Big Tech conglomerate of which Google is a part.

Attorneys General are urging the company not to discriminate against crisis pregnancy centers in search results and online advertising.

CAVING IN

Google has been caving in to the far left progressive Democrats by taking away such pregnancy centers from their advertisements and Google Maps entries on their search site.

The letter asks Google to advise the 17 co-signing Attorneys General whether it has adjusted its search results and advertisements to discriminate against crisis pregnancy centers, and if so, how.  

“Unfortunately, several national politicians now seek to wield Google’s immense market power by pressuring the company to discriminate against pro-life crisis pregnancy centers,” the letter says.

ASSAULT ON FREE SPEECH

“Complying with these demands would constitute a grave assault on the principle of free speech,” the attorneys general wrote. “‘Unbiased access to information,’ while no longer a component of Google’s corporate creed, is still what Americans expect from your company. ‘[S]tudies have found web users are more likely to find and trust news through search than social media sites.'”

They further explained the actions that would be taken against Google if it adheres to the Democrats’ “inappropriate demand.”

“Our offices will (1) conduct thorough investigations to determine whether this suppression violates the antitrust laws of the United States and our States; (2) investigate whether Google’s conduct amounts to an unlawful act of religious discrimination under state law; and (3) consider whether additional legislation—such as nondiscrimination rules under common carriage statutes—is necessary to protect consumers and markets,” the attorneys general noted.

“We trust that you will treat this letter with the seriousness these issues require, and hope you will decide that Google’s search results must not be subject to left-wing political pressure, which would actively harm women seeking essential assistance,” the letter reads. “If you do not, we must avail ourselves of all lawful and appropriate means of protecting the rights of our constituents, of upholding viewpoint diversity, free expression, and the freedom of religion for all Americans, and of making sure that our markets are free in fact, not merely in theory.”

Supreme Court Gives Texas Another Win Against Biden’s Lack of Border Security

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court handed Texas another victory in denying the Biden Administration’s request to stay a lower court’s vacatur of an unlawful Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo.

🔹As a result, the Administration must continue to follow the law while it awaits further legal proceedings. 

🔹This case arises out of a federal district court’s vacatur of a DHS immigration enforcement priorities memo.

🔹The judge concluded that memo is contrary to law, arbitrary and capricious, and procedurally unlawful for failing to go through notice-and-comment procedures.

🔹The core of the case is about certain immigration statutes, which say that DHS “shall” detain aliens with certain criminal convictions and those with final orders of removal. 

🔹Rather than abide by these statutes, DHS chose to follow their own contrary directives, which don’t require detention of those aliens. 

🔹After Texas won in federal district court, the Biden Administration sought a stay in the Court of Appeals, which was denied.

🔹The Administration then went to the Supreme Court, which denied their request and set oral argument on the merits for December 2022. 

“The Biden Administration just can’t help itself from breaking the law—especially immigration law,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “They have begged every court up to the Supreme Court to let them off the hook, and every time the court says ‘no.’ Today the Supreme Court made clear that, while we prepare for oral argument this winter, the Biden Administration must detain illegal aliens with criminal convictions. It’s the right legal decision, and it’s what’s best for Texas and our nation.”

Texas AG Urges SCOTUS to Say No to Biden’s Release of Criminal Illegals Back in U.S.

Texas Attorney General Paxton filed a brief in the United States Supreme Court opposing the Department of Justice’s request to stay a district court order vacating the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) September 2021 Immigration Prioritization Memorandum.

🔹Federal law requires DHS to detain certain aliens who have committed crimes and aliens with final orders of removal, but DHS’s Memorandum ignores those requirements.

In an earlier win for the State of Texas, the district court vacated DHS’s Memorandum, concluding that it violated the Administrative Procedure Act because it was contrary to law.

🔹They also ruled it was arbitrary and capricious, and procedurally invalid.

🔹Despite the Biden Administration’s efforts, the New Orleans-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit declined to stay that ruling. The Supreme Court should also deny the request of a stay pending appeal according to Paxton.

“President Biden implemented unlawful immigration priorities, allowing illegal aliens convicted of dangerous felonies to be released back into our country despite Congress’s clear instructions,” Attorney General Paxton said. “I have urged the Supreme Court to put a stop to this in order to protect Texas’s communities.”

Texas AG Launches Bot Investigation Against Twitter

Fake President = Fake Followers

In May 2022, a detailed audit for the social media giant by software firm SparkToro, found that about 11 million of Joe Biden’s Twitter followers are “fake followers.”

Elon Musk said he believes that 20% of all Twitter accounts are fake and vowed to not go through with his $44B purchase of the social media giant until the issue is resolved.

On Monday Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton launched an investigation against Twitter for potentially false reporting over its fake bot accounts in violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

🔹On Twitter, “bots” are automated, non-human accounts that can do virtually the same things as real people: send tweets, follow other users, and like and retweet others’ posts.

🔹Also known as zombies, these are automated Twitter accounts controlled by bot software. While they are programmed to perform tasks that resemble those of everyday Twitter users — such as liking tweets and following other users — their purpose is to tweet and retweet content for specific goals on a large scale.

🔹Spam accounts like these inflate followers and reach, and often push deceptive and annoying activity.

Just like election ballots, the White House camera set, his botoxed face, and social media followers, everything about Biden is fake.

🔹Bot accounts can not only reduce the quality of users’ experience on the platform but may also inflate the value of the company and the costs of doing business with it, thus directly harming Texas consumers and businesses.

🔹To address this concern, Attorney General Paxton issued a Civil Investigative Demand (CID) to investigate whether Twitter’s reporting on real versus fake users is “false, misleading, or deceptive” under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

🔹The CID requires Twitter to turn over documents related to how it calculates and manages its user data and how these numbers relate to Twitter’s advertising businesses.

🔹Twitter has until June 27 to respond to Attorney General Paxton’s Demand.

American liberals have spent at least the last eight years obsessing over “Russian bots” and Kremlin interference while very little attention has been paid to a homegrown danger — virtually limitless amounts of money being spent to covertly manufacture discourse and fake public support on social media.

Texas Attorney General Opens Investigation on Lawyers Bar Foundation for Aiding Massive Illegal Alien Invasion

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has opened an investigation into the Texas Bar Foundation for its possibly aiding and abetting the mass influx of illegal aliens. The investigation is based on credible complaints filed by U.S. Congressman Troy Nehls (TX-22) and members of the public.

The Texas Bar Foundation is alleged to have knowingly given donations to entities that encourage, participate in, and fund illegal immigration at the Texas-Mexico border, and potentially using taxpayer dollars received from the State Bar of Texas, which appoints the Foundation’s trustees. If true, this is likely an improper use of charitable funds because the funds are diverted from their intended—and potentially unlawful—purpose.

The Attorney General is granted broad powers under the Texas Constitution and by statute to investigate charities to ensure they are operating for the public benefit and in compliance with state law.

“Unfortunately, at the very time that our state is facing an unprecedented border crisis and our brave men and women are serving Texas in Operation Lone Star, it appears that the liberal State Bar’s handpicked cronies are misusing charitable funds to make the situation even worse. I will not let this illegal behavior continue any further. Thank you to Congressman Nehls and other concerned citizens for bringing this to my attention.”

Texas AG Ken Paxton

Rep. Troy Nehls, a Republican congressman from Texas, and other complainants gave him probable cause to open the investigation into the Texas Bar Foundation.

 The Texas-Mexico Border is currently being crossed by more than 200,000 illegal migrants a month.

“Go ahead sleepy Joe, continue down this path,” Nehls said. “And there will be that tsunami in 2022.. The American people don’t agree with what’s taking place at our southern border, and the 100,000 lives that are lost each year because of fentanyl.”

Paxton demanded the bar turn over to his investigators evidence that includes documentation showing:

  • All grants to immigration-related charitable programs and organizations for the past 10 years;
  • The monitoring, reporting and accountability requirements for use of those funds awarded to such organizations;
  • the Foundation’s final accounting and reporting from the grantee organizations reflecting how the funds were specifically utilized;
  • Board and/or committee meeting minutes discussing the awarding, monitoring, reporting and accounting of any such programs and/or grantee organizations.
  • Names of appointees made to the Texas Bar Foundation by the current State Bar of Texas President Sylvia Borunda Firth.

Texas Files Lawsuit Against Biden Administration to Defend Safety and Wellbeing of Children

Texas’ Ken Paxton, the state Attorney General who has the most lawsuits against the Biden Administration, has done it again.

On March 8, 2022, Paxton filed an amended lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services regarding new guidance that empowers the federal government to withhold federal funding from state entities that do not adhere to their misinterpretation of the Affordable Care Act, the Rehabilitation Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Specifically, the guidance states that doctors, medical providers, and other related medical staff who report “sex change” procedures and the administration of puberty blockers to minors as “child abuse” may violate federal law—even though state law says that such procedures can, in fact, constitute “child abuse.”   

This recent guidance comes in addition to Biden’s June 15, 2021 guidance that also attacked employers, forcing them to “allow exceptions from their generally applicable workplace policies on usage of bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers (collectively, ‘bathrooms’), dress codes, and pronoun usage, based on the subjective gender identities of their employees.”

All of the Biden Administration’s positions on these matters arise from the misinterpretation, misapplication, and misstatement of statutory and case law, according to Paxton’s press release.

“The federal government does not have the authority to govern the medical profession and set family policies, including what may constitute child abuse in state family law courts,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said. “It is time for the Biden Administration to quit forcing their political agenda. This is about the safety of children. It is time to put their well-being first.”

Childhood Sex Changes and Puberty Blockers is ‘Child Abuse’ Under Texas Law

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released a formal attorney general opinion concluding that performing certain “sex-change” procedures on children, and prescribing puberty-blockers to them, is “child abuse” under Texas law.

Texas Capitol

The holding comes at a critical time when more and more Texans are seeing the horrors that flow from the merging of medicine and misguided ideology.

Specifically, the opinion concludes that certain procedures done on minors such as castration, fabrication of a “penis” using tissue from other body parts, fabrication of a “vagina” involving the removal of male sex organs, prescription of puberty-suppressors and infertility-inducers, and the like are all “abuse” under section 261.001 of the Texas Family Code.

“There is no doubt that these procedures are ‘abuse’ under Texas law, and thus must be halted,” said Attorney General Paxton. “The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) has a responsibility to act accordingly. I’ll do everything I can to protect against those who take advantage of and harm young Texans.”

This opinion comes after Attorney General Paxton opined in an October 2019 letter to DFPS, stating that the “transition” of James Younger—the biological male son of Jeff Younger—to a “female” through puberty-blocking drugs, among other things, was “abuse” under at least three definitions set out in the Family Code, and that DFPS, therefore, had an independent duty to investigate. 

The opinion also follows Gov. Abbott’s August 2021 letter to DFPS requesting a determination of “whether genital mutilation of a child for purposes of gender transitioning through reassignment surgery constitutes child abuse.”

The Commissioner of DFPS replied that “genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse.”

During his 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden signaled support for children as young as 8 years old being able to change their genders.

Later, in agreement with the extreme far-left progressive movement, he nominated Dr. Rachel Levine, who identifies as a transgender woman, to be the United States assistant secretary for health.

During Levine’s confirmation hearing, the health official refused to rule out allowing a child to override parental consent in pursuit of hormone therapy or sex-change surgery.
