U.S. government: North Carolina LGBT law violates civil rights

McCroryA conservative group representing more than 50 Illinois parents challenged the Obama administration’s aggressive stance on letting transgender students use the bathrooms of their choice Wednesday — the same day the Justice Department warned North Carolina that a law requiring transgender people to use bathrooms that align with their gender at birth violates the Civil Rights Act.

Access to bathrooms and locker rooms for transgender students has been debated hotly in the race for the White House, with Donald Trump arguing that such individuals should be free to use whichever bathroom they prefer.
