Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) said that he is suing the federal government to prevent transgender women from using the bathroom with girls and then “switching back the next day” to become males again.
During a Thursday morning interview on Fox News, host Brian Kilmeade asked the Attorney General why Texas and 10 other states were suing to suppress transgender rights instead of showing “tolerance for all.”
Paxton argued that President Barack Obama’s administration was trying to change the meaning of Title IX of the Civil Rights Act to include transgender people even though lawmakers in the 1960s never intended to include the group.
“My concerns are about the rule of law and about safety for children,” he insisted. “So this in my opinion is a solution in search of a problem.”
“This opens the door to all kinds of issues with men deciding one day that they want to be women and then switching back the next day,” Paxton added.

Led by Dr. Lisa McKenzie at the University of Colorado, researchers found that the chemicals released from oil and gas wells can have serious and potentially fatal effects on babies born to mothers who live within a mile of an active well site—as about 17 million Americans do.

WATCH: Trump blurts out a massive lie about Dem congresswomen — after being asked about Melania
President Donald Trump on Friday falsely accused Democratic congresswomen of using the phrase "evil Jews."
Trump ignited a firestorm over the weekend after saying that the congresswomen of color should "go back" to their countries of origin. At a rally on Wednesday, his supporters chanted "send her back" after Trump attacked one of them, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
But on Friday, Trump insisted the congresswomen were the real racists.
"You know what is racist to me? When somebody goes out and says the horrible things about our country, the people of our country, that are anti-Semitic, that hate everybody, that speak with scorn and hate -- that to me is really a very dangerous thing," Trump said.
