America First Legal Partners With State of Texas and Attorney General Ken Paxton, Sues Biden Administration Over Radical New Title IX Rules That Mandate Radical Transgender Ideology in Schools and Threaten Women and Girls

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, America First Legal joined Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in filing a critical lawsuit against President Biden’s Secretary of Education and others to stop the Biden Administration’s newly promulgated Title IX rules from wreaking havoc on women, children, and schools across the country. 

Title IX is a federal statute that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program that receives federal money, including K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. The new rule contorts these protections for women by forcing schools to accommodate the wishes of men claiming to identify as women (or “transgender”) to enter female-only spaces and join female-only organizations. This would force schools to permit biological males to use female restrooms and lockers. If schools refuse, federal funding will be withheld.

This rule violates existing federal law, ignores the Constitution, and denies women the protections that Title IX was intended to afford them. The Biden Administration has exceeded its authority and radically distorted the meaning intended by Congress when the law was made. Further, the changes would fundamentally transform the educational atmosphere of publicly funded educational institutions, forcing communities to capitulate to unscientific gender ideology and putting girls and women at risk in K-12 schools and on college campuses.

The Biden Administration has attempted time and again to manipulate longstanding federal law in an attempt to advance radical transgender ideology. In a previous legal action, America First Legal prevailed in a lawsuit on behalf of a class of doctors against the Biden Administration’s edict that attempted to force medical providers to provide transgender medical services to patients based on a similar erroneous interpretation of “sex.”

America First Legal is proud to partner with the great State of Texas to fight for the rights of women and children across the United States. 

Statement from America First Legal President Stephen Miller:

“America First Legal is honored to stand with the great Ken Paxton and the State of Texas in filing this emergency lawsuit to stop Biden’s war on women. Biden’s new Title IX regulation is a vile obscenity: it forces women and girls to share locker rooms and restrooms with men. It forces them to call a he, a she, and to pretend in every way that a man is a woman, humiliating, degrading, and erasing women. This is an abomination, and as outside counsel for Texas we will battle this regulation in court with all the legal fight we can bring. It must be defeated for the sake of American women and for the sake of our daughters,” said Stephen Miller.

Statement from Gene Hamilton, America First Legal Vice President and General Counsel:

“The Biden Administration’s attempt to redefine ‘sex’–and, in turn, a basic biological reality that has existed for all of human history–to encompass ‘gender identity’ must be stopped. If allowed to go into effect, every single educational institution that accepts federal funding, even if it doesn’t want to, will be beaten into submission through investigations, enforcement actions, and litigation based on the whims of bureaucrats and confused young people. We are immensely proud to partner with Attorney General Paxton and the great State of Texas to stop the Biden Administration from being able to implement its radical agenda,” said Gene Hamilton.
