Trump Administration Dismantles Federal Protections For Transgender Students

Feb 27, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” Donald Trump dials back on the Obama executive order that provided accommodation for transgender teens to use the bathroom of their choice in public schools. The administration says it’s a matter of states’ rights, not civil rights. What does this mean in the fight for LGBTQ rights across the country? And what other rights might be affected? Our panel focuses on a very contentious issue.

And later, Bill and Jim Galloway discuss the presumed end of Brandon Beach’s casino gambling (or destination resort) bill. And the feds may not be finished with Sally Yates, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) accuses Yates of sabotaging Trump’s immigration ban and has launched a Judiciary Committee investigation.

Panelists:

Jim Galloway—Political Columnist, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Dave Baker—Georgia Faith & Freedom Coalition

Jeff Graham—Georgia Equality
