The Trump administration has rolled back protections for transgender prison inmates introduced under former President Barack Obama after some prisoners challenged the policies in court.
An inmates biological sex will now be used to make the initial decision as to where transgender prisoners are housed, instead of the gender to which they identify, according to a change in guidelines announced on Friday by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.
The move, decried by transgender rights advocates, comes after four women held at a Texas detention center filed a federal lawsuit. The inmates argued that the previous prison guidelines, introduced in January 2017 just days before Obama left office, put them at greater risk of rape because they might have to share facilities with transgender women.
Under President Donald Trump, the Justice Department said in August that it would evaluate the issues in the lawsuit.

Hussein was nuts.
What other obama regulations are still in effect ? I thought that at this stage they are all gone
An American hating lunatic.
Obama 8 years of Muslims , Gay and Drive Jobs Away
I thought the term “biological mother” arose in cases of adoption, and where the adopted child sought out the birth mother?
I applaud the Trump administration for prioritizing the safety of women. Perhaps the men could be given a separate facility.
Part of the Divorce scene too.
As it has been for hundreds of years.
God bless President Trump as he seeks to undo the the illogical changes made by nobama and the libs.
I had no idea Obama-nation decreed fake women would be imprisoned with real honest to G-d women. Glad they sued.
I am a biological male, I identify as a lesbian, you’re going to put me in a women’s prison?
Since you’re in jail, you don’t get to identify as anything other than a convict.
This first, then All the other OBama issued “” Protections!
Under PREA, the inmates are housed according to their physical “attributes”. A female who is claiming to be a male and is transitioning, is housed in a female facility, but general in an administrative segregation unit.
Jail is not work
The inmates already turn same sex folks into whores
Forget putting opposite sex folks together
It would be complete utter chaos
A couple boys in with the girls
Or worse. A couple girls with the males
Thank goodness we have adults back in charge
Hussein was out to create as much chaos as possible
“Dad, I just found out I’m pregnant.
But don’t worry. I don’t think it’s mine.”
No, a stepmother is a nonbiological mother.
