WASHINGTON, D.C — Rumors are flying throughout Washington that the Department of Justice lead by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is set to file in a heavily leaning right wing court, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, a brief that supports their opinion that Title VII doesn’t prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

In fact Buzzfeed Reports:

Director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender & HIV Project, James Esseks said…that the Justice Department making a move such as this “would be a gratuitous and extraordinary attack on LGBT people’s civil rights. DOJ would be reaching out to offer its opinion on these issues, since they are not a party to this case. Fortunately,” Esseks told BuzzFeed News, “whether the Civil Rights Act protects LGBT people is ultimately a question for the courts to resolve, and not for the Attorney General.” said Esseks.

Legal director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Shannon Minter, downplayed the Justice Department’s publicity stunt against gay rights in the case, “because any such shift would inevitably be viewed as political and, as such, would likely be given little if any weight by the courts.” said Minter.

The LGBTQ community is getting more of a look at just how President Trump is breaking every campaign promise to our community with first today of issuing a Ban on Transgenders serving in Any Capacity of the U.S. Military and now targeting our community through the U.S. Justice Department by rejecting our protections in the workplace.

Let President Trump know your views on this matter, contact him on Facebook | Twitter.
