'None of us can stand by' when a state enters business of 'legislating identity': Lynch

Posted

The U.S. Justice Department has sued North Carolina to get it to abandon a law that restricts use of public restrooms, further escalating a fight over the rights of transgender Americans. "None of us can stand by when a state enters the business of legislating identity and insists that a person pretend to be something or someone that they are not," said Attorney General Loretta Lynch, comparing the measure to Jim Crow-era racial discrimination laws and bans on same-sex marriage.
