A federal judge in Texas blocked the Obama administration's mandate on transgender bathroom use for public school students.
U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor issued an injunction Sunday. The injunction aims to halt the federal mandate that says students should be allowed to use whichever bathroom corresponds with their gender identity.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton reportedly believes the attempt to enforce the guidelines is unconstitutional, which is a sentiment Texas and 12 other states have echoed.
