WASHINGTON, D.C. – Family Research Council criticized today’s injunction by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly that blocks enforcement of parts of President Trump’s transgender military policy. 

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, a Marine veteran, released the following statement:

“This is where judicial activism is leading us.  The courts have moved beyond legislating on the invented rights of abortion and same-sex marriage to clearly usurping the constitutional authority of the executive branch.  The president has the primary task of protecting Americans but we see the courts weakening his immigration policies designed to protect America from threats and now telling the commander-in-chief how to run the military,” concluded Perkins.
