Ted Cruz is out of election race, but he’s still taking fight to Obama over trans bathroom threat

He may be out of the race for president but Ted Cruz is not out of the business of championing conservative values.

The Texas senator joined fellow Texan, Gov. Greg Abbott, in railing against the Obama administration’s threat to withhold federal funding from public schools who don’t allow student’s to use the bathroom of the gender they claim to identify with.

“America has woken up to yet another example of President Barack Obama doing through executive fiat what he cannot get done through our democratic process,” he said in a statement. “Today, he decreed that schools across the country must allow men and boys to use the restrooms, locker rooms, and shower facilities previously reserved for girls. Not only is this decree contrary to law, but it makes no sense.”

“There is a reason that we give girls access to their own changing rooms: It is for their privacy, safety, and security,” the statement continued. “The administration’s dangerous departure from that common-sense norm must not stand.”

The Senator said during his “many years in law enforcement” he “handled far too many cases of child molesters, of pedophiles, of people who abused little kids.”

“What we’ve now seen across the country, from the administration’s lawsuit against North Carolina to the superintendent of the Fort Worth Independent School District in Texas, is that common-sense needs for safety and privacy are being trumped by leftist notions of faux egalitarianism,” he wrote.

“I encourage every school superintendent, school board, and parent across this nation to disregard this barely veiled threat from the White House aimed at overturning the utterly reasonable practice of preventing men and boys from entering girls’ restrooms and changing rooms,” Cruz added.

At least one superintendent, fellow Texan Dr. Rodney Cavness of the Port Neches-Groves Independent School District, already said Obama’s decree was “going straight to the paper shredder.”

Don’t mess with Texas.
