‘Administration going beyond the limits of constitutional authority’

Longtime family expert and advocate Tony Perkins of the influential Family Research Council says there is a solution to the radically leftist ideas coming out of the Obama administration as the president opens all stops in trying to establish his legacy.

Impeachment.

The suggestion came on Friday after the Obama administration issued a rule mandating open bathrooms in schools across the country to satisfy demands from transgenders.
 

Perkins released a statement on his organization’s website condemning the idea.

“Once again the Obama administration is going beyond the limits of their constitutional authority to rewrite laws legally adopted by Congress. Under the guise of ‘protecting students from discrimination,’ these federal agencies are using the bully pulpit to strip parents and local school districts of the right to provide a safe learning environment for their children,” he said.

“Parents should demand that school boards not sacrifice the safety of the children out of fear of losing federal funding, which on average only amounts to about nine cents of every educational dollar. It is also time for the Republican leadership in Congress to act and rein in this administration. Bottom line, the president’s decree should be resisted with every legal and moral instrument we have available to us in this country,” he said.

“If the American people do not speak up now on an issue like this, there’s no limit to what President Obama’s administration, or future liberal presidents, will be emboldened to do.”

Sign the petition demanding an end to the madness! No men in girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms or showers! Just say no!

In an interview with Fox News’ Todd Starnes, Perkins elaborated.

“If the president chooses to go forward with this outrageous order – then Congress should begin impeachment proceedings,” he said.

Starnes called the Obama administration’s move a “cultural bombshell.”

“School districts that dare defy the administration’s directives could face lawsuits and lose millions of dollars in federal funding. Resistance, in other words, is futile,” he wrote.

“I warned you in my book, ‘God Less America’ that the fight over trangenderism would be the next battleground. And here we are – a nation where boys who identify as girls have more rights than girls who were born biological girls.”

And Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he’ll fight.

“Our country is in crisis and Texas must lead the way forward.”
