A federal judge has issued a temporary injunction to stop President Biden’s expansion of Title IX in four states. The judge expressed concerns that the mandatory gender identity protections were an overreach of executive power, describing them as an ‘abuse of power.’

Fox News reported, “U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty granted a preliminary injunction on Thursday, and referred to the Biden administration’s unilateral Title IX changes as a ‘threat to democracy.’

“‘This case demonstrates the abuse of power by executive federal agencies in the rulemaking process,’ Doughty said in his ruling. ‘The separation of powers and system of checks and balances exist in this country for a reason.’

“Doughty ruled that the changes were inadmissible because the term ‘gender discrimination’ as used in the establishment of Title IX “only included discrimination against biological males and females at the time of enactment.’

“The ruling blocks implementation of the changes in Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana and Idaho.

“Title IX is a longstanding civil rights law prohibiting sex-based discrimination in schools and other education centers that receive federal funding.”
