Judge temporarily blocks Texas investigations into families of trans kids

District Judge Amy Clark Meachum said the governor’s directive for the state child welfare agency to investigate parents who provide gender-affirming care to their children was “beyond the scope of his authority and unconstitutional.” The statewide injunction will remain in effect until the case is heard in July.

Empty seats reserved for transgender children and their parents sit empty as most were too afraid to publicly testify at a DFPS Committee meeting in Austin on Friday, March 11, 2022.
