Lawyers for transgender people are raising concerns about the Trump administration’s failure to provide enough protections for them during the Trump Administration.
They are also calling for an investigation into the Trump Department of Justice for failing to adequately protect transgender people from discrimination in the workplace.
“The Trump administration is failing the transgender community,” said Michael A. Seidel, who represented transgender man Eric S. Barron in his civil rights lawsuit against the Justice Department.
Attorney Mark A. Smith, who has represented transgender women in a number of other lawsuits, said the Justice department is not adequately protecting transgender people.
The Trump Administration has been accused of violating the law in its treatment of transgender people, particularly when it comes to transgender health care.
Transgender people have been the subject of numerous lawsuits and investigations by the Trump Justice Department, the FBI and others.
In May, Trump appointed a special counsel to investigate whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.
The investigation is still underway.
As a result, the Justice Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties is reviewing its policy on discrimination against transgender people to see whether it is being applied fairly, the office said in a statement.
A recent decision by the Department of Education to deny an award of federal funds to a school that failed to provide access to a transgender student’s gender-affirming locker room was also a factor in the Barron case, Smith said.
Smith said he did not know of any transgender individuals being denied access to bathrooms and locker rooms in the Trump era.
But he said it is possible that the Trump DOJ may have violated federal law when it declined to intervene when the school denied Barron’s request for gender-reassignment surgery.
Under the Obama Administration, the federal government has offered no protections to transgender students, regardless of their gender identity.
It has been a consistent policy that the federal law protecting transgender students is Title IX, a 1964 law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.
